Conference Services

Inclusive sustainable development can only be achieved when high-quality knowledge and information reach recipients in their own language, through well-targeted, accessible and visible meetings and content.

Language and conference professionals at the United Nations are part of a global project aimed at uniting people in both their strengths and weaknesses, so as to build a better world.

They are responsible for adapting individual messages to a global diversified audience, upholding a system of universal values, and disseminating a missive of peace and solidarity.

Language professionals embody the power of languages, which they place at the service of a multilateral organization with the convening power to ensure that sustainable development and social justice remain a collective endeavour. Multilingualism is not only a means of communication but an end in itself, and the bedrock of diversity, tolerance, human rights and dialogue.
