UN 75: 2020 & Beyond North Texas Dialog
The Sustainable Development Goals are marking their 75th anniversary at a time of great disruption for the world. Will we emerge stronger and better equipped to work together? Or will distrust and isolation grow further? 2020 must be a year of dialogue, when we come together to discuss our priorities as a human family, and how we can build a better future for all.
