UN75 gathered their views through surveys and dialogues, with crucial support from UN Country Teams and Information Centers in all regions. We did this by:

  • Conducting a global survey of people’s priorities for recovering better from COVID-19 and for building a better future for all – over 1.3 million people responded
  • Creating materials to support more than 3,000 dialogues in 120 countries – virtual and physical – in classrooms, boardrooms, parliaments and community groups 
  • Working with Edelman Intelligence and the Pew Research Center to poll a representative sample of 50,000 people in 50 countries
  • Analyzing print, broadcast, online and social media in 70 countries
  • Mapping academic research in the six official UN languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Spanish and Russian

Together, this was the UN’s most ambitious effort to gather priorities and solutions from the global public.

In line with the UN Secretary-General’s data strategy – For Action by Everyone, Everywhere, UN75 worked with the UN Development Programme to make the data gathered during this exercise available to policy-makers and the public.

What the world wants

In 2020, more than 1.5 million people - from all countries and all walks of life - shared their hopes, fears, priorities and solutions for the future.
