Streamed live on Sep 25, 2020

This UN75 Webinar features pioneering museum leaders from around the world in dialogue about how the cultural sector can confront the most pressing social and environmental issues facing humanity. As bearers of history and physical places of trust, museums are uniquely placed to transform the values that guide our actions. Facing unprecedented global threats, a positive and hopeful future depends on radical shifts in mindset and on action at massive scale.

So, at this crucial moment in time, how do we lead with action and optimism?

This dialogue is presented in partnership with the Open Mind Project as part of this week's historic 75th Session of the United Nations General Assembly.

Moderated by: Molly Fannon, CEO, Museum for the United Nations – UN Live
