YPIN Global Cafe: The Future of the United Nations
March 23rd, 2016
Global Cafe is a new YPIN discussion series where participants get together to examine, analyze, and discuss solutions for some of the biggest global challenges of our day. In March, we will give some thought to the future of the United Nations. Last year, the UN celebrated its 70th anniversary. This is a critical time for the UN as it works towards remaining relevant and meeting the challenges of the 21st century. Will the Security Council be reformed? How will the nature of peacekeeping operations evolve? What challenges exist for the post-2015 development agenda? Will member states diminish the UN’s capacity in the future, or enhance it?
Members and non-members are all welcome. Before each event, some background materials on the topic will be added to the Facebook event page here. It’s helpful to read the articles before the discussion, but don’t worry if you haven’t. Part of the discussion is to help each other catch up on the facts.
Please support our hosts at The Rendezvous by enjoying some food and beverages during the event!
