In January 2020, the United Nations launched the global consultation to mark its 75th anniversary. Through surveys and dialogues, it asked people about their hopes and fears for the future: What will the world look like in 25 years? Which developments are decisive for our future? And how should the UN respond to current challenges?
Over the past months, more than one million people in all 193 UN Member States have taken a survey, and around 1,000 in-depth dialogues were held in 82 countries worldwide. In addition, 50,000 people in 50 countries took part in independent opinion polling on the work of the UN, an analysis of social and traditional media was conducted in 70 countries, and academic and policy research mappings were generated in all regions. The report brings together these different data streams.
