An Evening with His Excellency United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

In September 2015, the United Nations adopted the landmark 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, supported by 17 new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs represent a universal commitment to end poverty, achieve shared prosperity, build peace and secure a healthy planet for present and future generations. With the inclusion of Goal 16 – promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable institutions at all levels – the Agenda explicitly recognizes the inextricable link between peace, effective governance and sustainable development. As he completes his second term as Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mr. Ban Ki-moon will share his thoughts on the role of the United Nations and the legal community in achieving Goal 16 over the next 15 years.
