Assam Don Bosco University in support of United Nations is conducting a UN75 Dialogue to commemorate the 75th anniversary of United Nations. Launched by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, it promises to be the largest and furthest reaching global conversation ever on building the future we want.
In a world of dramatic changes and complex challenges, from the climate crisis to population shifts to the unknown course of technology, we need collective action more than ever before. Through UN75, the United Nations will encourage people to put their heads together to define how enhanced international cooperation can help realize a better world by 2045, the UN’s 100th birthday.
At this pivotal moment in human history, UN75 asks three big questions –
What kind of future do we want to create?
Are we on track?
What action is needed to bridge the gap?
In this regard, Assam Don Bosco University in support of United Nations has selected the issue – INEQUALITY – BRIDGING THE DIVIDE for discussion.
Today, wherever people live, they don’t have to look far to confront inequalities. Inequality in its various forms is an issue that will define our time. Confronting inequalities has moved to the forefront of many global policy debates as a consensus has emerged that all should enjoy equal access to opportunity. ‘Leave no one behind’ serves as the rallying cry of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
A conversation was hosted by Assam Don Bosco University using different online platforms, finally leading towards an informal video conference on 27Th May, 2020 at 3pm (IST).
