An evening combining old world charm with new world elegance, raising funds for our Model UN Global Education program in low-income schools.
Our annual Global Citizens Gala is an elegant, vibrant event celebrating Boston’s international spirit and honoring the global citizens who make this city a premier cultural center.
We are proud to announce that His Excellency, Mr. Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary-General, 2007-2016, and Mayor of Boston, the Honorable Martin J. Walsh will both join us at this year’s gala and be honored with UNAGB’s Global Citizenship Award.
Mr. Ban Ki-moon was the eighth UN Secretary-General, a role described as “equal parts diplomat and advocate, civil servant, and CEO.” Mr. Ban Ki-moon mobilized world leaders around complex global challenges from climate change to pandemics, gave a voice to the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people, and is now internationally celebrated for his global bridge-building skills.

Martin J. Walsh, a lifelong champion of working people and a proud product of the City of Boston, was sworn in as the City’s 54th mayor on January 6, 2014.
Mayor Walsh’s vision is of a thriving, healthy, and innovative Boston — a City with equality and opportunity for all, where a revolutionary history inspires creative solutions to the challenges of the 21st century.
Experience a unique, world-class evening of distinguished guests, exceptional international cuisine, conversation, entertainment and dancing.
The annual Global Citizens Gala celebrates our work with over 4,000 students in greater Boston and beyond through our Model UN program, which empowers young people across our community.
