Attending the Multi-stakeholders Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation at the United Nations by Jiaxun (Leila) Li (A'19) Jun 13

My first conference at the United Nations was deeply illuminating, despite the many esoteric acronyms. The STI Forum is short for the Multi-stakeholders Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As a part of the UN Major Group for Children and Youth (MGCY), I had the chance to observe the meeting from the perspective of a civil society “stakeholder”. Since the UN is dominated by states, such a forum aims to incorporate other “stakeholders”, including private companies, non-governmental organizations, academia and major groups from the civil society. Thanks to the Science Diplomacy Center at The Fletcher School, I learned about the intersection between science, and policy. Starting from there, I also learned about the Science-Policy Interface (SPI) and the Technology Facilitation Mechanism (TFM) at the UN.
