About the event
In 1945, the founding of the United Nations raised hopes for a new era of peace and prosperity for all. Over the past 75 years, the Organization has become the cornerstone of today’s multilateral architectures tasked with managing and reducing shared global problems. In recent years, however, a deeply worrying rise in unilateral sentiment across the globe has combined with the world’s long-standing challenges to produce a crisis of confidence in multilateral institutions. Defined by the Covid-19 pandemic and its massive human, social, and economic costs, this challenging, complex moment in which we find ourselves requires global governance on a greater scale than ever before, and a rethinking of the very multilayered system it rests upon to ensure inclusive and equitable policies and outcomes for all. Will the pandemic crises provide a golden opportunity to rekindle the commitment to multilateralism and sustainable development? How can the United Nations regenerate its capacity for mobilizing cooperation for share global challenges and reshape the zeitgeist of our time?
