WHAT NEXT FOR THE
BUILDING A MORE SECURE WORLD
SUNDAY 18 OCTOBER - SATURDAY 24 OCTOBER (UN DAY) 2020
A festival marking the UN’s 75th anniversary and addressing the overwhelming insecurity induced by Covid-19
On Health, Food, the Environment, Economics, Peace, and the Digital space, we must act
Our online workshops explored the challenges we face
Our Building a More Secure World conference pulled together an action plan
Then, artists from across the globe united in an evening concert exploring UN Past, Present & Future
As we became socially-isolated in response to a pandemic and were also experiencing the dramatic effects of global warming, our feelings of insecurity compelled us to work together to prioritise actions for building a better world.
We focused on 6 key areas of insecurity:
Health, Food, Environment, Economics, Peace
and the Digital world.
We have brought together people from around the world to decide these key actions for themselves, their communities, their nations and the UN.
