FEPS annual conference ‘UNited for’ has been held since 2018 in New York ahead of the United Nations General Assembly.

The 2021 ‘UNited for’ edition has been a key part of the Global Progressive Forum (GPF) 2021. This flagship global progressive initiative is bringing together EU and UN Commissioners, Nobel Prize laureates, prime ministers, Members of the European Parliament, civil society representatives and activists from all over the world to develop a global progressive agenda.

Taking place more than a decade after GPF 2009 -a momentous gathering of global progressives in Brussels including the current UN Secretary-General Antonío Guterres and former U.S. president Bill Clinton-, the 2021 edition will once again aim to discuss how to better channel globalisation for the benefit of everyone.
