We put on around 150 events a year, drawing upwards of 7,500 participants from all over the world and all walks of life. These events take place from Addis Ababa to Austin, Delhi to Washington, D.C. They include private roundtables for high-level UN officials and Member States to grassroots gatherings on Capitol Hill and energetic festivals like the Social Good Summit and our annual Global Leadership Dinner. We connect, convene, and empower people who care about creating positive change in the world and want to help the UN advance global progress for all.
