Great Decisions is our monthly series from the Foreign Policy Association. A short film is followed by general discussion led by career diplomat Kirk Ressler.
On the eve of the international organization’s 70th birthday, the United Nations stands at a crossroads. This year marks a halfway point in the organization’s global effort to eradicate poverty, hunger and discrimination, as well as ensure justice and dignity for all peoples. But as the UN’s 193 member states look back at the success of the millennium development goals, they also must assess their needs for its sustainable development goals—a new series of benchmarks, which are set to expire in 2030.
New attendees are welcome. A guide to the series is available to check out. Please contact Jocelyn Ozolins at firstname.lastname@example.org or 631-749-0042 Ext. 107 for more information.
