World leaders will convene for the Sustainable Development Goals Summit, the Climate Ambitions Summit and the General Debate, among other key events.
The General Debate begins on 19 September 2023 continuing through Saturday 23 September, and concluding on Tuesday 26 September 2023.

The General Assembly is the main policymaking organ of the United Nations (UN). Comprising all UN Member States, it provides a unique forum for multilateral discussion of the full spectrum of international issues covered by the Charter of the United Nations, where each of the 193 Member States has an equal vote. It meets in regular sessions from September to December annually, and thereafter, as required.
It discusses specific issues through dedicated agenda items or sub-items, which lead to the adoption of resolutions.
