Description

In celebration of United Nations Day on October 24 2020 and as a proud UN Media Compact Partner, we're thrilled to invite you to 'Green Queen LIVE: Nations United - We're Out Of Time', a Live Broadcast of the acclaimed film โ€œNations United: Urgent Solutions for Urgent Timesโ€ directed by Richard Curtis (yes, that Richard Curtis) on Friday October 23, 2020.

Nations United is a special, first of its kind film, created by the United Nations on its 75th Anniversary and to mark five years since the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In the midst of a pandemic radically transforming our world, Nations United tells the story of the world as it is, as it was, and as it could be. It focuses on the solutions and action we need to tackle poverty, inequality, injustice and climate change. The film features luminaries such as Thandie Newton, Don Cheadle, Malala Yousafzai, Michelle Yeoh as well as a performance by Beyonce.

To commemorate the occasion, we are inviting inspiring speakers from across the globe that we believe have an important message to share about their vision and work in the context of achieving the 17 SDG goals by 2030.

After an introduction by Green Queen founder Sonalie Figueiras, phenomenal speakers such as Vikas Garg of abillionveg, Jill Robinson of Animals Asia, Archana Kotecha of @Liberty Asia, Isaias Hernandez of Queer Brown Vegan, Emily Au Young of Reemi, Varun Deshpande of The Good Food Institute, Lance Lau will be using their voice to educate, inspire and empower us!

After we hear from the speakers, we will broadcast the Nations United film live, and then have a short Q&A session with the viewers.

Advocacy and education are crucial for inspiring and implementing change. We recognise the urgency and weight of these issues and believe that our speakers will help send a powerful message.
