UN General Assembly

What is UNGA?

The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) is the UN’s main policy-making convention. The 78th session (or UNGA 78) will be held during the month of September 2023 in New York. Comprising 193 Member States, it provides a unique forum for a joint discussion on the full spectrum of international issues covered by the Charter of the United Nations. 

UNGA is not just about world leaders. It’s also a platform for the public – and public figures like Malala
and Sir David Attenborough – to educate and inspire; a critical opportunity for all to come together and chart a course for the future.

Support for all

The SDGs “wheel” depicts the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Wearing an official UNDP SDGs lapel pin is just one way to show your support year-round. Shop our special UNGA Collection for other branded products.
