UN@70: We, the People? – The Peace Palace Edition – The Hague

Time: 20:00 – 22:00

The event, an initiative of the Hague Project Peace and Justice, will be a tribute to the important work of the United Nations and the newly adopted UN Global Goals for sustainable development.

Dignitaries from the International courts and tribunals in The Hague and representatives of other international organizations will also offer their thoughts on this subject.

The event will be attended by representatives of international organizations in The Hague, all of which contribute to a better world through their mission and daily work, as well as the diplomatic corps and partners from Geneva, Vienna and Brussels.
