From Words to Action: Our Common Agenda and the UN75 Declaration
On 21 September 2020, the United Nations’ 193 Member States adopted the Declaration on the Commemoration of the Seventy-Fifth Anniversary of the United Nations (UN75 Declaration), which outlines a vision and twelve distinct commitments addressing the world’s most pressing threats and opportunities. The milestone UN75 Declaration called for “the Secretary-General to report back before the end of the seventy-fifth session of the General Assembly with recommendations to advance our common agenda and to respond to current and future challenges.” Based on “a process of profound reflection” on the future of multilateralism and global governance, the Secretary-General’s report Our Common Agenda (to be released roughly two weeks prior to this event) is expected to reflect diverse stakeholder perspectives—from civil society and business groups to Member States, youth representatives, and thought leaders—and chart a path forward for strengthening the United Nations.

This UNGA side event is meant to inspire participants to use this moment for innovating and strengthening the world body and fulfill the promise of the UN75 Declaration and the Secretary-General’s vision of a “more inclusive and networked multilateralism.” The response to COVID-19 has been a stress test for the international community and demonstrated the need to rethink, innovate, and strengthen the United Nations and the global governance architecture to address the world's most pressing challenges.
