Breakout session | Stage 1
The UN75 consultation on ‘the future we want, the UN we need’, is the UN’s ambitious exercise in crowdsourcing priorities and solutions, and harnessing big data analysis tools. The findings, which include priorities for ‘recovering better’ from COVID as well as current priorities for the SDGs, will inform Member States and senior UN officials. This session will see key constituencies – youth, civil society, business, labour cooperatives, tech, indigenous peoples and local government that took part in the consultation – discuss the findings and how best to take them forward at the local, national and global level – working across borders, sectors and generations. Through the insights shared, the session is geared towards re-inspiring engagement and action on the Goals in this difficult Covid context, and help frame the Goals as the roadmap for the future. The concrete recommendations, scalable solutions and partnerships formed through this process will act as a rallying cry for greater ambition and accelerated action on the Goals.
