The Director-General of the UN office in Geneva talks about sustainable development.
Michael Moller, the Director-General of the United Nations office at Geneva and Secretary-General of the Conference on Disarmament, delivers a keynote lunchtime speech: "2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development - why business should bother?"
In 2015, world leaders adopted a series of historic key policy frameworks and agreements that will define the future of humanity and of our planet. Michael Møller reflects on how the new global road map will improve life on this planet. He will touch upon the crisis in Global Governance, the need to adopt new multi-stakeholder structures and the necessity to radically change the way we do business, as well the role of the private sector and other stakeholders in this endeavour.
The Director-General is responsible for all activities of the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG). He was appointed by and accountable to the Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon.
Mr. Møller has devoted most of his professional life (more than 30 years) to the UN, here in Geneva, where he started his career; in New York; in Haiti; Iran; and Mexico. From 2008 – 2011, he was Executive Director of the Kofi Annan Foundation.
