Today, the United Nations Foundation and Kenneth Cole Productions will announce a new partnership to support the unique news distribution and digital conversation functions of Global Daily. Found at GlobalDaily.com and across social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter, Global Daily serves as a central resource for finding news and information on the new global goals, international development, and the international effort to address climate change.

Through this new partnership, Kenneth Cole Productions will support Global Daily’s ability to increase awareness and drive online conversations around big global issues by curating content from around the web. The partnership, which builds on Kenneth Cole Production’s work over 30 years on social and charitable initiatives, was announced alongside the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit in New York, in which a record number of world leaders gathered and agreed to a new set of global goals – the Sustainable Development Goals – that will guide social and political action over the next 15 years in an effort to eliminate extreme poverty, improve health globally, combat hunger, protect the environment, and address climate change. As media outlets around the world cover these proceedings and the issues they address, Global Daily offers a one-stop resource for engaged global citizens to link to the latest coverage.

“Issues without borders need news with a global perspective – and innovative media organizations are bringing that to the world. Global Daily spotlights the creative, engaging conversations that media is helping drive worldwide. People seek trusted, curated news about the global goals and sustainable development now more than ever before,” said Aaron Sherinian, UN Foundation Chief Communications and Marketing Officer. “With Kenneth Cole Productions’ support, Global Daily will continue to showcase some of the best reporting from around the world on these issues, driving awareness and engagement that will help advance the global goals.”
