Event Details

The U.N. Perspective Series are free events aiming to build community and convene global and local perspectives on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Presented by the United Nations Association of Greater Boston (UNAGB), each U.N. Perspective Series focuses on a specific SDG and opens dialogue between global experts, local leaders, and the Greater Boston community.

“Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace…[It] requires the building of societies where all members feel that they can flourish…”

This September, in celebration of International Day of Peace, we will be focusing on SDG 16: Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions to learn from leaders, both local and global, who are building peace and tackling racism in the Boston community and beyond.

This event is free, but registration is required. Please note that the event is open to all ages, but the lecture is tailored to adult audiences.
