The United Nations at 70: A Time to Reflect

The United Nations turns 70 this year, providing the perfect opportunity to reflect on what the organization has accomplished and the challenges ahead. On Friday, leaders from around the world will gather at the UN in New York to attend the General Assembly and adopt the Sustainable Development Goals, the roadmap for achieving the world we want and creating a future of peace, prosperity and dignity for everyone, everywhere.

This also provides an opportunity for United Nations Academic Impact member institutions to think about how they can advance the 2030 agenda and help promote the Sustainable Development Goals through education, research, awareness raising and global citizenry.  Find out more about the history of the UN, the Sustainable Development Goals and how you can get involved
