The Global People’s Assembly 2023 will be on 17 (Sunday) and 18 September (Monday) in New York – at the UN SDG Summit and the UN General Assembly. This is a critical moment for people and planet. The assessment of how well we are doing implementing the 17 Sustainable Development Goals at the High Level Political Forum in July was dismal. This is a critical moment as the UN SDG Summit on September 18 and 19 can be the turning point that people and planet need to survive and flourish. The Global People’s Assembly was started in 2019, and has since grown stronger. The assembly is co-organised by 40 civil society networks. Everyone is invited to participate. To learn more, read the concept note here, and read the Global People’s Assembly 2022 Declaration here.
A declaration will be presented at the UNSDG Summit. We are members of the Global Coalition for Social Protection Floors – on of the 40 civil society network co-organizing the Global People Assembly and also of Coalition for the UN We Need.
Register to attend virtually. I will be present in person. The focus is on structural reasons for social, environment and economic injustice and to move towards ending inequalities. If you have any queries don’t hesitate to contact me using the comment box at the end of this post.
