Our theme for GES2024—PUSHING FORWARD>>>FOR PEOPLE & PLANET—highlights the importance of empowering our advocates to take bold action in order to achieve great impact in the areas of people and planet. The Summit will serve as a continuation of the celebration of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights’ 75th Anniversary. The full day event will begin at 10:00 am ET with an Opening Plenary followed by panel discussions at 30 minutes and fireside chat conversations at 20 minutes. Throughout the day, we will spotlight short video segments to provide additional diverse topics on geographic hotspots. These 5 minute videos will transport our audience to view the UN’s impact “out in the field.” New this year, a unique Fashion Showcase will demonstrate how individuals and businesses are bolstering the push for sustainability through their products and platforms.See Global Engagement Summit Schedule
