GLOBAL DISASTER or GLOBAL SOLUTIONS?
Peace with Justice: Human Rights, Sustainable Development and Eliminating Extreme Poverty by 2030
Students and young professionals from around the world* are coming to the 2019 Global Solutions Lab. They will be briefed by UN experts (from the UN Development Program, UN Environmental Program, UNESCO, UNICEF, WHO and other UN agencies), develop strategies for solving some of the world’s most critical problems, and then present their work at the UN at the end of the Lab. Participants learn about global problems, options, technology, culture, resources and what they can do to make a difference. They will meet others with similar passions about the state of the world—and what we can do to make things better. A book documenting their work is published after the Lab.
