As the international community gathered at the United Nations headquarters for the launch of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly, NYU Stern, the UN Association of the USA and Business Council for the UN convened a solutions-focused lunch focusing on the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #17: “Partnerships for the Goals.” The event connected students and business leaders who are working towards the SDGs, to explore concrete possibilities for collaboration. Students and representatives from Becton Dickinson, Coca Cola, Intel, Johnson & Johnson, Mars, Mastercard, Nestle, and SkyPower participated in roundtable discussions focused on climate and clean water; digital technology; and global health.
