The United Nations Association of Atlanta is honored to feature Drawdown Georgia to create a blueprint for a better future here in Georgia.
This year’s theme is “Creating a Blueprint for a Better Future.” This year #UN76 is dedicated to reminding us how interconnected the world is and that a threat anywhere- from the COVID-19 pandemic to intensifying impacts of climate change - is a threat everywhere. We strongly believe that the U.S should not -and cannot- tackle global challenges alone. We all know that creating a blueprint for a better future can only be achieved through working together. In this context the 2030 Agenda needs involvement more than ever. That's why this year’s UN Day will not only celebrate exemplary local efforts but also showcase the state of art expertise and experience in addressing the challenges posed by climate change.
This event will highlight Drawdown Georgia and the local and essential contributions of Georgians through multilevel actions, providing opportunity for observer agencies and interested parties to showcase progress and experience of their mitigation efforts. UNA-Atlanta always aims to inspire action, provide feedback, share, and advocate solutions through the lens of justice and equity.
Save the date for this virtual event: Thursday, October 28, 2021, 4:15 - 7:00 p.m., to celebrate United Nations Day here in Atlanta.
