Background and Objectives

Our Common Agenda (OCA) Report by the UN Secretary General submitted to the UN General Assembly in Sept. 2021 presents new challenges and opportunities for global community to engage in various global issues which are interconnected and mutually reinforcing.

The OCA Repot is the main follow-up action plan to the UN Declaration on the Commemoration of the UN+75 in 2020 which has strong implications and impact on the SDGs and peace globally and locally.  The session is to seek ways and means of engagement for multi-stakeholder partnerships on OCA Report and SDGs in terms of peace in line with the PyeongChang Message for Peace 2020 which include the outcome of the discussion on the UN+75 during the PyeongChang Peace Forum 2020.

The Session is to be organized in partnership with the UN Secretary General Office and the Coalition for the UN We Need (C4UNWN).

2021 Global People’s Forum

This 2021 People’s Forum will provide an opportunity for Civil Society to come together and strategize on how to further evaluate and advance the many progressive proposals from the Secretary-General’s Our Common Agenda report. Combining survey results with reflections from the Forum, this working meeting will aim to identify elements of an advocacy strategy that will prioritize those OCA proposals and initiatives to advance, as well as identify other key proposals and campaign initiatives that are not reflected in the OCA report.
