STORYLINE
The UN General Assembly is like the Super Bowl of global diplomacy.

It is the only time that almost every world leader gathers in the same place – at UN HQ in New York in September.

But there is so much that goes on behind the scenes.

It’s like global diplomacy speed dating.

World leaders come in, they talk to each other for a few minutes, they get to know each other.

They exchange ideas.

And that’s when negotiations can happen, and progress can be agreed.

Words, not weapons.

That’s the fundamental idea at the heart of the UN.

Humanity can only survive, humanity can only thrive through cooperation, not conflict.

And that’s why the UN exists.
