The 76th session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA 76) takes place September 14-30, 2021). The high-level debate begins on Tuesday, 21st September 2021 (http://sdg.iisd.org/events/76th-session-of-the-un-general-assembly-unga-76/).
The Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP) together with other international organisations will co-host in parallel, the Global People’s Assembly over three days September 21st –23rd, where civil society will virtually meet with representatives of the world’s most vulnerable and marginalised groups at the Global People’s Assembly to analyse the current situation and to develop and present a declaration. The declaration will be presented to the governments at the UNGA and the UN leadership.
The Assembly will be a space for all participants to review the structural reasons for social, environment and economic inequalities and injustices during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond, to plan and develop collaborative actions in order to prevent austerity and to create systemic change that will achieve the 2030 Agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement.
