In addition to his presentation, the ambassador will engage in a question-and-answer session with the audience after his lecture and will receive questions from the press prior, from 3:40 to 3:55 p.m.
A career diplomat and leading voice on the climate crisis, Kőrösi was sworn in as president of the U.N. General Assembly on Sept. 13, 2022. As presiding officer of the UN’s main policymaking forum, Kőrösi continues the assembly’s work promoting global recovery from the pandemic, addressing climate change and striving to meet the 17 U.N. development goals for 2030. He is expected to speak about these topics as part of his World Leaders Forum address.
