Shaping a New Social Contract and New Global Deal: UN DESA Fireside Chats

Part of the UN DESA Global Policy Dialogue Series

  • Session 1 on Equality and Inclusive Growth: Tuesday, 19 January 2021, 8:45-10:15 a.m. EST
  • Session 2 on Data for the Climate and SDGs: Thursday, 21 January 2021, 8:45-10:15 a.m. EST

As the think tank of the United Nations, the Department of Economic and Social Affairs demonstrated its thought leadership in 2020 by providing agile support to Member States as they battled the devastating economic and social impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. UN DESA's experts oriented their intergovernmental support, analytical and capacity development work to provide stakeholders with the data, policy recommendations and other tools needed to respond quickly and effectively to the challenges before them and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. 

Now, UN DESA's experts on economic, social and environmental issues will share their experiences and predictions for the year ahead, and take questions from the audience in two "fireside chat" events. Two separate sessions in one week will offer a rare insider's glimpse into the work at the heart of sustainable development.

The event is free and open to all, and will be streamed live on UN DESA's Facebook page. Joining both sessions is not required. Captions will be available in multiple languages.
