The annual opening of the United Nations General Assembly is a key moment on the diplomatic calendar. Hundreds of world leaders head to New York to address the General Assembly and participate in various meetings and events around the city. Each day this week, in partnership with the United Nations Foundation, the Global Dispatches Podcast will bring you the key highlights from the 77th United Nations General Assembly.
Day 1 of #UNGA77
Our special series kicks off with an UNGA77 curtain raiser from Elizabeth Cousens, President and CEO of the United Nations Foundation. Elizabeth Cousens is a veteran of many United Nations General Assemblies and she explains the key stories, events, moments and leaders’ speeches she will be following during High Level Week.
Next we hear from Thaís Queiroz, Youth Representative for the World Organization of the Scout Movement and United Nations Foundation Next Generation Fellow. She participated in the Transforming Eduction Summit convened by UN Secretary-General António Guterres, which was a major meeting of heads of state and civil society leaders focused on improving education access and outcomes.
