Takeaways from the 2019 UN General Assembly

Learning’s from some of the world’s most influential and inspiring international development leaders

This summer I had the great privilege of working for the Rockefeller Foundation, supporting their Power and Asia Operations teams. At the end of my fellowship I participated in various events during the UN General Assembly in New York and had the opportunity to discuss some of the worlds most pressing development issues with a particular focus on “SDG 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all”

My top 3 take-away’s;

John Kerry, former US Secretary of State, mentioned during his speech at Climate Week; “Impossible is not a declaration, it is a dare”.

Feeling excited and optimistic about the future, more than ever!

One of the many amazing events I attended during the 2019 UN General Assembly in New York.
