UNA-USA Engagement Summit



The United Nations Association of the United States of America will convene the 2022 Global Engagement Summit virtually on February 24. The theme for 2022 - One Humanity, One Planet, One Common Agenda - emphasizes the importance of unity in promoting global progress and creating a better world.


UNA-USA’s Global Engagement Summit, typically held at UN Headquarters in New York City, is the largest annual gathering of UN supporters in the country, bringing together U.S. and UN officials, community leaders, young professionals, and subject matter experts from across the country to delve into the mission and lifesaving work of the United Nations.


Please join UNA-Boulder County and fellow advocates at the Global Engagment Summit to learn, be inspired, and take individual action to show collective support of a strong U.S.-UN partnership.


Meet elected leaders, like Her Excellency Amina J. Mohammed, Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations and Melissa Flemming, Under Secretary-General for Global Communications of the United Nations.


Hear directly from change-makers who are driving progress on the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals in their communities and discover how to foster action locally to reach the target in our country and beyond.


Through five virtual field visits, witness the work of UN agencies on the ground delivering lifesaving assistance, support, and care to communities in Haiti, Afghanistan, Cyprus and more.


Learn how to hone your skills and capitalize on your experience to become an even more effective advocate and champion for the United Nations.


Plenary sessions will be held between 1-5PM ET, along with smaller discussions on various topics and current issues, from fighting COVID misinformation to human rights. Attend plenary sessions, speed networking, and/or trivia breaks.
