Coffee Chats

Conversations on our World

UNA-NCA Coffee Chats have successfully brought together global, national, and local leadership -- as well as hundreds of UN advocates across the globe - through this series of dynamic and engaging discussions, all centered on the Sustainable Development Goals.

Throughout the year, UNA-NCA will continue to highlight the work of senior leaders across the United Nations, Congress, the private sector and civil society through hour-long virtual roundtables that seek to answer- what are our shared goals? What is the future of sustainable development? Most importantly- how do we keep the spirit of hope alive?
