UNA-USA is hosting its first ever all-virtual Global Engagement Summit February 19-20. We’re excited to welcome more participants than ever before to delve into the mission and work of the United Nations.


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 community leaders, college students, young professionals, and subject matter experts from across the country to delve into the mission and lifesaving work of the United Nations. 


Although this summit will be held virtually, we’re excited to welcome more Americans than ever before to participate in this program and to join our movement of 20,000 members who are united in their commitment to global engagement and their support for the UN and its agencies. 


Throughout our two-day event, you’ll have many opportunities to connect and network with other UN advocates from across the United States.


Session Tracks


Outside of the exciting plenary sessions, the Summit will feature three tracks: Inspire, Educate, and Mobilize, which are key tenets from UNA-USA’s mission. Please note that you are not limited to participate in only sessions within one track, but can hop around as desired since all sessions will be available on demand and can be viewed at a later time.



Travel the world to see firsthand the impact of UN agencies providing lifesaving assistance, support, and care to communities through a series of five virtual field visits.



Take away knowledge and best practices to actualize the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals in your community and how we collectively can meet targets in our country and beyond.
