Uniting Business LIVE


20.09.2021 - 22.09.2021



The UN Global Compact is organizing the second Uniting Business LIVE during the UN General Assembly.

Uniting Business LIVE connects the high-level multi stakeholder dialogues of the Private Sector Forum, the grounded local knowledge and implementation strategies in the Global Impact Forum, and partnership and leadership examples of the SDG Business Forum, into one inclusive, impactful and innovative all access global event.

Over the course of the three days at the start of the opening week of the UN General Assembly session, Uniting Business LIVE will bring together leaders and heads of State and Government, business, UN agencies and civil society for global cross-sector dialogue. Panels, presentations, CEO interventions, breakout-sessions and exposition booths will aim to take stock of the state of the world, address gaps in progress, drive business ambition on the SDGs and highlight cooperative and actionable solutions that are ready — today.
