Communicating the UN at a Time of Polarization

Fri., Dec. 10, 2021 | 10:00am - 11:00am

Online

Join Melissa Fleming, Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications at the United Nations, as she explains the challenges of her role in an era of profound political, social and digital fragmentation and polarization. 
 
Ms. Fleming will outline the new approach she is bringing to UN communications – one that aims not just to inform the public of what the UN does, but to engage them to care and mobilize them for action. She will also explore the threats posed by misinformation, on COVID-19, climate change and so much more.
 
Erika Manouselis, Research and Administrative Manager at the Future of Diplomacy Project, will moderate this discussion.

This event is only open to members of the Harvard community.
