High Level Meeting to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the UN

September 21 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm EDT

The UN General Assembly will hold a one-day high-level meeting on Sep 21 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the UN. The theme of the event is ‘The Future We Want, the UN We Need: Reaffirming our Collective Commitment to Multilateralism’. The meeting will adopt a declaration that was agreed in July 2020.

Action: Encourage your government to use the occasion of the high level meeting to call for implementation of the declaration, and in particular to support the global ceasefire, commit to resolve conflicts peacefully, encourage all countries to accept the compulsory jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice, support full implementation of the Paris agreement on climate change and accept a 10% cut in global military budgets to support the UN, SDGs and COVID-19 management and economic recovery.
