Global Issues Series

Bringing the global, local.

The Global Issues Series explores all international topics of interest. From presentations on peacekeeping, discussions on development, films on climate, lectures and luncheons, we have an event for everyone!

As part of the UN’s goal to develop relationships with the business and professional communities, UNAGB holds discussion-based events on timely international topics. We bring together experts from the public and private sector as well as from the international system, NGOs, and local organizations in the field, for programs with keynote presentations and panel discussions and question-and-answer periods for attendees to participate in the dialogue.

Previous noteworthy speakers have included:

Kofi Annan, former UN Secretary-General

Jeffrey D. Sachs, Special Advisor to UN Secretary-General

Gabriela Shalev, Israeli Ambassador to the UN

Mary Robinson, former UN Commissioner for Human rights, former President of Ireland
