BTS To Deliver Special Message At 75th United Nations General Assembly
BTS will be a special speaker at the 75th United Nations General Assembly.
On September 22, the Korean Committee for UNICEF announced via a press release, “BTS’s message of hope will be broadcast to the world at the high level meeting of the Group of Friends of Solidarity for Global Health Security on September 23 at 9 a.m. ET (10 p.m. KST).”
BTS was invited as a speaker by the Group of Friends of Solidarity for Global Health Security to talk about the difficulties that future generations will face due to COVID-19. The Group of Friends of Solidarity for Global Health Security was launched by South Korea in 2020 to discuss health security issues such as COVID-19. It involves 40 UN member states, with South Korea, Denmark, Sierra Leone, Qatar, and Canada as co-chairs.
This will be BTS’s second time speaking at the United Nations General Assembly. The group previously gave an address at the launch ceremony of UNICEF’s Generation Unlimited at the 73rd UN General Assembly in 2018. Starting in 2017, BTS has worked with UNICEF on the campaign “Love Myself” to end violence against youth.
Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the 75th UN General Assembly is being held primarily through virtual meetings and pre-recorded speeches.
