UN75 Campaign KISS Foundation

75th anniversary of UN in 2020

Given that the observation of UN75 falls during a year of unprecedented global disruption, compounded by a global health crisis that has triggered severe economic and social upheaval, it is critical to engage in collective global dialogue and cooperation to understand how the world’s community can emerge stronger and better-equipped to work towards the goal of sustainable development for all. Thus, to mark the UN’s 75th anniversary, in January 2020, Antonio Guterres, Secretary General of the United Nations, initiated a worldwide consultation with a strong call for action on inequalities and climate change, as well as more solidarity.


KISS and KIIT are partnering to organize a week-long digital UN75 campaign from October 18th – 24th, 2020. Herein, we hope to amplify indigenous & youth voices while addressing key areas of Education, Inclusion and Climate Change through online dialogue & discussion as well as field level awareness campaigns while adhering to Covid-19 health and safety guidelines.

The objectives of this campaign are to:

  • Amplify indigenous and youth voices in the global discussion on sustainable development vis-a-vis Agenda 2030
  • Identify possible strategies and initiatives
  • Share experiences across a variety of Indian stakeholders
  • Garner insights regarding the requirements to build and boost capacity at different levels so that the implementation of policies and programmes can be more effective to achieve the goals and targets of sustainable development.

Each event will connect a variety of participants – from senior government officials working on SDGs, planners, district level administrators, representatives from training institutions, researchers and civil society organisations engaged with the SDG Agenda in India to grassroots level social workers, tribal leaders, and youth.
