Across the global landscape, many are calling for action to improve human security, dignity, social justice, global public health, protection of basic human rights, and multilateral cooperation. Despite obstacles, we are entering an era of renewed commitments to a “Common Agenda” for multilateral engagement, heralding the promise of a UN system that is truly “fit for future.”

In 2021, we ask: how can we make the UN system “fit for future,” and the UN itself “fit for purpose”? How can scholars, practitioners, students, science and technology experts, and community-based actors collaborate more fruitfully in devising integrative pathways that will result in growth and prosperity for all?
