Making global great again

Episode Summary

The battle of world views is in sharp focus today, because it’s the day everyone here at UNGA debates the global goals: the spine, if you will, of the UN’s efforts at peace and well-being.

Episode Notes

On today’s dispatch with POLITICO senior editor Ryan Heath, we meet two people trying to translate the UN's goals: Arancha Gonzalez, a Spanish economist and currently the Executive Director of the International Trade Centre, the joint agency of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development and the World Trade Organization. Plus, Richard Curtis, the director of films like 'Love, Actually' and 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' who now makes films that work to make people connect emotionally with the UN and its work.
