Civil Society Townhall with the President of the 77th Session of the UN General Assembly
The Department of Global Communications, Civil Society Unit, in collaboration with the Office of the President of the General Assembly, the Department of Economic and Social Affairs, and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights is organizing an in-person Civil Society Townhall with the President of the 77th Session of the UN General Assembly, H.E. Csaba Kőrösi, entitled, Solutions for a Sustainable Future through Enhanced Global Cooperation: A Q&A with the President of the General Assembly.
The President of the General Assembly, H.E. Csaba Kőrösi will convene his third Town Hall meeting on 27 June 2023 as part of his ongoing efforts to encourage civil society’s participation and valuable contribution to key issues on the agenda of the General Assembly. While Member States remain the ultimate decision-makers within the United Nations, it is crucial for stakeholders to embrace their role as decision-shapers. The third Town Hall will be presented as a Q&A with civil society and will focus on how the upcoming SDG Summit (September 2023) and the Summit of the Future (September 2024) can contribute to sustainability transformation and more effective global cooperation that can tackle today’s challenges as well as new threats in the future. The Town Hall will serve as an opportunity for civil society to ask questions and to engage with the President of the General Assembly on different issues and will be moderated by the Director of the Outreach Division in the United Nations Department of Global Communications, Maher Nasser.
