Under the motto “UN75, beyond 2020”, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, has promoted a dialogue that’s open to all citizens around the world, directed particularly towards young people. For this reason, UC3M students have promoted this event from the Association for the United Nations and International Law (ANUDI, in its Spanish acronym) in collaboration with the Student Delegation from the School of Law and Social Sciences at the UC3M. They also have institutional support from the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union, and Cooperation (MAEC, in its Spanish acronym).

The conference consists of a series of talks, lectures, and round tables in which figures from the university world, public institutions and youth associations will participate.

The opening ceremony will take place on Wednesday 21st October at 3pm with speeches from the UC3M’s President, Juan Romo, the UC3M General Delegate, Manuel Navarro, and the ANUDI Chairperson, Helen Souki. Following this, the Deputy Assistant Director of the United Nations Sub-Directorate-General in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Francisco Javier Cantero, will deliver a talk about the Charter of the United Nations after 75 years.

Talks will be held on the 22nd and 23rd October and will address topics such as international intervention in armed conflict, the recognition of social rights and the fight against poverty, the Arabic world within the United Nations, or refugee protection. In addition to this, two round tables will take place to address the situation of the SGDs in universities and the role of young people in relation to the United Nations.
