UNA-USA’s Global Engagement Summit, typically held at UN Headquarters in New York City, is the largest annual gathering of UN supporters in the country, bringing together U.S. and UN officials, community leaders, young professionals, and subject matter experts from across the country to delve into the mission and lifesaving work of the United Nations. Our 2022 theme—One Humanity, One Planet, One Common Agenda—highlights the importance of unity and that the only way to drive global progress to create a better world for us all is to do it together.

The Global Engagement Summit is your opportunity to hear directly from U.S. and UN officials, change-makers, and activists not only about the importance of bolstering the U.S.-UN relationship and advancing progress on the Sustainable Development Goals but also how you can take immediate action to contribute to a brighter future.

This year’s summit is unlike any other because you can truly customize your experience. Our concurrent sessions, which align with the three tenets of our mission—inspire, educate, and mobilize—allow you to create your own agenda based on your interests, and for the very first time, we’re offering four levels of engagement based upon each topical area or session, so that you can take meaningful action. We are truly putting the engagement in Global ENGAGEMENT Summit and are seeking participants who want to make real change.


In addition to our live programming, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the platform and check out exciting on-demand content in our Engage Hub, including a behind-the-scenes look at how various UN agencies deliver lifesaving assistance in countries around the world.

We also invite you to stick around following the live program to participate in smaller, moderated salon discussions on a variety of topics and issues, including the UN’s response to humanitarian crises and protecting human rights. These discussions will be held from 5 – 6:30 p.m. ET.

I hope you’ll take advantage of this inspiring opportunity and join us February 24 for an action-packed program. We look forward to sharing more information with you soon!

Senior Director, Programs & Policies, UNA-USA
