Every September, world leaders and dignitaries from around the world gather in New York City for the United Nations General Assembly “General Debate.” In addition, many high-level, special and side events take place at UN Headquarters and around the city.
Here are 9 ways you can join the global conversation.
1. Follow Ireland’s UN Youth Delegates on Twitter & Facebook
2. Use the official hashtags – #UNGA, #UN4RefugeesMigrants #SDGs and more
Millions of people around the world have signed up for regular updates from the UN’s social media accounts and millions more are talking about UN issues. You can join these discussions by using the official meeting hashtag, #UNGA, across your social media channels. New this year is the custom emoji on Twitter that appears when a user adds the official #UNGA hashtag to tweets. For the Summit for Refugees and Migrants we are using #UN4RefugeesMigrants.
