27 September at 8:00 AM – 9:30 AM EDT
Join us to our 76th United Nations General Assembly Side Event on 27 September 2021 at 8 AM EST about “Promoting Transparency to Counter Disinformation and Build Trust – UN agencies working together to support Member States in times of COVID-19 and beyond”. UN Global Pulse, the Office of the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Technology, the United Nations Department of Global Communications, UNDP, UNESCO, and WHO will host the free online event.
This follow-up side session to the 2020 United Nations General Assembly aims to listen to Member States, civil society organizations, and companies to learn about the biggest challenges they face in countering disinformation while upholding freedom of expression, and identify solutions for improved cross-collaboration. It will highlight key learnings, shared considerations, best practices, and recommendations that emerged out of the inter-agency work (throughout the UN system) over the past 12 months.
Interpretation will be provided in French and Spanish.
