2021 Global Engagement Summit

UNA-USA is hosting its first ever all-virtual Global Engagement Summit February 19-20. We’re excited to welcome more participants than ever before to delve into the mission and work of the United Nations.

Connect with Fellow UN Advocates

Although this summit will be held virtually, we’re excited to welcome more Americans than ever before to participate in this program and to join our movement of 20,000 members who are united in their commitment to global engagement and their support for the UN and its agencies. 

Throughout our two-day event, you’ll have many opportunities to connect and network with other UN advocates from across the United States.

 

Session Tracks

Outside of the exciting plenary sessions, the Summit will feature three tracks: Inspire, Educate, and Mobilize, which are key tenets from UNA-USA’s mission. Please note that you are not limited to participate in only sessions within one track, but can hop around as desired since all sessions will be available on demand and can be viewed at a later time.
