The United Nations turns 75 in 2020. This is indeed a time for celebration. The UN has helped maintain peace and security and lessen the casualties of war, played a critical role in the fight against AIDS and other diseases, feeds approximately 104 million people annually from 80 nations, and has convened a series of summit conferences to combat our growing climate crisis.
We now face threats that were unimaginable 75 years ago. Nuclear proliferation, climate change, mass migration, and terrorism are a daily occurrence. We need a new UN, capable of handling these challenges. CGS has partnered with organizations worldwide to use the occasion of the UN’s 75th anniversary to push for meaningful change. UN2020 and Together First are two organizations that are leading the way. We invite you explore and get involved in this vital work.
