The SDG Media Zone will report from the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly on September 18th - September 22nd at the United Nations Headquarters, welcoming editors, bloggers, high-level delegates and influencers to communicate innovations, partnerships and discussions as a call to action for humanity to engage the Sustainable Development Goals.
Heads of State and Government will be gathering at the UN Headquarters in New York for the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly which opens on 12th September. The General Debate under the theme “Focusing on people: striving for peace and a decent life for all on a sustainable planet” begins on 19th September.
In a world dominated by economic and environmental constraints, high demands on political and financial stability, and beset with increasing migration and mounting refugee crises, the discussions at this year’s United Nations General Assembly can play a critical role in catalyzing action for the achievement of sustainable development and peace.
“The SDG Media Zone continues to play a critical role in the communication of action towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals,” said Kerry Bannigan, SDG Media Zone Executive Producer. “The space connects content creators and digital influencers with world leaders, government and organizations to celebrate world changing innovations and partnerships of the global community.”
During the week of 18th to 22nd September, the UN Department of Public Information together with the Office of the President of the UN General Assembly, UN Foundation and the PVBLIC Foundation will host the SDG Media Zone, a live broadcast of interviews, panel discussions and other digital content, to engage people all around the world in the important conversations happening at the UN General Assembly. Participants are encouraged to stay up-to-date with event happenings and engage in key moments using #SDGLive.
