Secretary-General shares his vision for the UN through the launch of the "Our Common Agenda" Report
10 September 2021
The United Nations Secretary-General today presented his report on "Our Common Agenda" before the end of the 75th session of the General Assembly.
"Our Common Agenda" report looks ahead to the next 25 years and represents the Secretary-General’s vision on the future of global cooperation. The UN head told the GA :
We are at an inflection point in history. The COVID-19 pandemic has served as a wake-up call and with the climate crisis now looming, the world is experiencing its biggest shared test since the Second World War.
Humanity faces a stark and urgent choice: breakdown or breakthrough. The choices we make — or fail to make — today could result in further breakdown and a future of perpetual crises, or a breakthrough to a better, more sustainable, peaceful future for our people and planet.
Our Common Agenda is an agenda of action, designed to strengthen and accelerate multilateral agreements – particularly the 2030 Agenda – and make a tangible difference in people’s lives.
Our Common Agenda contains recommendations across 4 broad areas for renewed solidarity between peoples and future generations, a new social contract anchored in human rights, better management of critical global commons, and global public goods that deliver equitably and sustainably for all.
Our Common Agenda presents the Secretary-General's vision on the future of global cooperation through an inclusive, networked, and effective multilateralism.
