On behalf of the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation, I am pleased to share with you the invitation for

The Dag Hammarskjöld Lecture 2019

Tuesday, 1 October 2019, 16.00 – 18.00

University Main Building, Biskopsgatan 3, Uppsala

The Lecture, jointly organised by the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation and Uppsala University, is held in commemoration of the second Secretary-General of the United Nations in recognition of the values that inspired him personally – compassion, humanism, and commitment to international solidarity and cooperation.

This year we have the distinct privilege of hosting Christiana Figueres as the 2019 Dag Hammarskjöld Lecturer, where she will deliver an address titled “Hammarskjöld Today: His Legacy on Environmental Issues”. Ms. Figueres has served as Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change 2010 – 2016, is Founding Partner at Global Optimism and convenes Mission 2020, a global initiative that seeks to bend the curve on greenhouse gas emissions by 2020.
