UN Exterior

Today at noon, join us for a virtual tour of the United Nations with Visit UN, who are offering Untapped New York Insiders an exciting opportunity to explore the United Nations from the comfort of your own home. This journey will take you through a virtual Security Council Chamber and General Assembly Hall with its beautiful designs while showing some of the works of arts decorating the inside of the United Nations Headquarters. One of Visit UN’s Tour Guides will guide you through the Organization’s history with a focus on the current work of its principal organs.

Through the interactive experience you will learn how the United Nations addresses issues such as disarmament, peace and security, human rights, and how you can support the Sustainable Development Goals. During the pandemic while the United Nations Headquarters are closed, images of the famous General Assembly Hall, the Security Council Chamber and other venues bring the location to life.

This talk is part of a year-long celebration of the United Nations’ 75th Anniversary, a partnership between Untapped New York and UN75. The core of the initiative is a short, one-minute survey focusing on the key priorities for international cooperation, where results from the survey will be presented to world leaders and governments this September.

Today’s live event is organized for Untapped New York Insiders — get two months free with code STAYHOME. A video of the talk will also be made available to all our Insiders afterwards in the Video Archive section of our website.
