The United Nations are celebrating their 75th anniversary this year. UN Member States have begun negotiations on a declaration for the UN’s 75th anniversary that will focus on Peace and Multilateralism. The UN Secretary-General has launched a global conversation on the role of global cooperation in building the future.
The UN Secretary-General considers the consultation of local and regional governments a milestone to capture the future of multilateralism and its role in managing global trends, including climate change, changing demographics, new technologies and inequalities.
The constituency of local and regional governments has put its contribution to the UN75 consultation and report on top of its advocacy agenda for the year. These contributions are becoming all the more important in the aftermath of the outbreak.
All world regions will hold one online regional consultation to ensure that all voices are heard in the process.
The regional and specific consultation will engage local and regional elected representatives and practitioners to discuss key issues to be addressed in the report will be debated. The online consultation will gather concrete inputs and recommendations to feed into the Local and Regional Governments UN75 Visioning Report.
The European Section of UCLG, CEMR, will hold the UN75 Consultation the 16th of June from 2pm to 4pm CEST.
