UN@75 - Shaping our Future Together

To mark its 75th anniversary in 2020, the United Nations will launch the biggest-ever global conversation on the role of global cooperation in building the future we want. Worldwide, people will discuss the challenges of our time and bring their own perspectives and ideas for their solution. “No country, no community is able to solve the complex problems of our world alone,” says UN Secretary-General António Guterres. “We need to come together. Not only to talk, but also to listen.” Starting in January 2020, the United Nations will hold dialogues around the world and across borders, sectors, and generations. The aim is to reach the global public; to listen to their hopes and fears; and to learn from their experiences.

“It is absolutely essential that you all join the conversation,” says Guterres. “We need your opinion, your strategies, your ideas for us to be able to deliver better for the people of the world that we must serve.” While UN75 seeks to drive conversation in all segments of society - from classrooms to boardrooms, parliaments to village halls - it will place special emphasis on youth and those whose voices are too often marginalized or not heard in global affairs. The Robert Bosch Stiftung supports the UN anniversary campaign and will participate in the global dialogue next year. The views and ideas that are generated will be presented to world leaders and senior UN officials at a high-profile event during the 75th Session of the General Assembly in September 2020. UN75 aims to build a global vision for the year 2045, the UN's centenary.
