Goals House @ UNGA
Sunday 20th – Friday 25th September 2020
This year Project Everyone and freuds partnered with Soho House to host a week-long series of events in London, New York and Berlin, with satellite events in Abu Dhabi and Kigali. Discussions centred around the key themes of the Global Goals, including: how to disrupt global hunger, tech and innovation, the great green reset, clean water and sanitation, restoring the oceans and breaking the barriers to women’s health.
All events were streamed virtually and instant updates on Instagram at @goalshouse and on LinkedIn at @goalshouses.
