"Rethinking 'global': creating a museum for the work and values of the United Nations"

Lightning talk part of the session "The future is now: practical approaches to the museums of tomorrow" on Monday 27 May

The Museum for the United Nations – UN Live is an emerging global institution with a mission to connect people everywhere to the work and values of the United Nations, one of the world’s few truly global organizations. This session discusses UN Live’s approach to making a global organization and idea relevant and tangible for people in their local communities worldwide.

The Museum for the United Nations – UN Live is an emerging global institution with a mission to connect people everywhere to the work and values of the United Nations. The United Nations is one of the world’s few truly global organizations and its very core idea is that of using global collaboration to solve the world’s problems. This raises the question for UN Live: how do you engage people – who are part of local communities and are first and foremost familiar with their own local contexts and lives – in the work and values of a ‘global’ organization? The session discusses UN Live’s approach to this “global/local” question and presents its thoughts on how to make the United Nations relevant and tangible for people worldwide.
