As the UN marks its 75th anniversary this year, the world community faces a global health crisis with severe current and long-term economic and social impacts. Amidst the disruption and uncertainty, global dialogue and action is more critical than ever. In this context, the first virtual UN Summer Academy will focus on the theme “The Future We Want”.

Through five days of facilitated learning – combining live webinars with thought leaders, small-group breakout activities, and a group project on UN75 – participants will explore transformative approaches required for implementation of the 2030 Agenda and share concrete examples and practices from diverse country contexts and stakeholder perspectives. Do not miss this opportunity for an immersive online learning experience with unparalleled learning and networking opportunities!

Thanks to the generous support of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, this course is offered at a reduced fee of $250 USD. Moreover, in order to offer highly–qualified candidates the possibility to participate in the online UN Summer Academy, the state of North Rhine-Westphalia is funding 50 full scholarships. The deadline for scholarship applications is 5 July 2020.  You can find out more about the UN Summer Academy, including how to apply for scholarships, at
