Organized by Global Citizen

September 21
6:30 PM – 9:00 PM
Tenement Museum
103 Orchard Street
New York, New York

(RSVP by September 18)

This reception will bring together prominent voices and experts in water, sanitation, and global health to celebrate the leadership of the High-level Panel of Water in working to achieve the entire scope of Global Goal 6: clean water & sanitation, and to discuss what more needs to be done to achieve Global Goal 3: good health & well-being.

This event in particular will focus on access to fecal sludge management and essential vaccines linking into broader issues of access to clean water and medicines. Through this cross-cutting collaboration, we are presented with a unique opportunity to come clean for child health and secure for all children a better tomorrow.

GenH Challenge Workshop

Organized by Johnson & Johnson (J&J)

September 20
2:00 PM – 5:30 PM
Blender Workspace
New York, New York


New solutions for today’s enduring health challenges can come from anyone, anywhere. A new method… a twist on a tried-and-true practice… an adaptation out of necessity that reveals a new way forward… These everyday innovations have the potential to transform health for people, communities, and humanity.

Join Johnson & Johnson during the UN General Assembly for a hands-on discussion, workshop, and networking mixer to help turn your spark of an idea into the concept that could win one of six prizes from the GenH Challenge, a social venture competition offering up to $1 million in cash and other incentives to pioneers of ingenuity worldwide. Whether you’ve started an application or are just forming a possible idea, this event will provide tools and insights that can strengthen your application to the GenH Challenge.
