Knowledge & Learning Commons: Mental Health Matters, interactive workshop

Library Events Room, B Building (B. 135), 1st Floor.

21 November 2019 – 12:30 to 2 p.m.

What is the UN doing to improve mental health and wellbeing for its personnel? Mental health is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.

It is our pleasure to invite you to an event hosted by Therese Fitzpatrick, Global Lead for the UN’s Mental Health Strategy Implementation, in collaboration with Human Resources and Staff Counselling and Staff Welfare teams from UNOG and all of the UN agencies based in Geneva. This event will inform you of what has been done so far, what are the priorities that we are working on, and most importantly what we hope to achieve. We encourage you to come, to share your ideas and your experiences. Together we can really make a difference to the way we work, and in turn improve our health and well-being both in work and in our personal lives.

Knowledge & Learning Commons: Conflict in Times of Change

Library Events Room, B Building (B. 135), 1st Floor

19 November 2019 – 12:30 to 2 p.m.

This fourth session will focus on the challenges and opportunities that arise in times of change. New technologies, restructurings, and a new office building – today change has become the new normal. But change can also bring uncertainty and ambiguity, resource constraints and a challenge to previous priorities.

Together with experts in conflict management and change management, we will explore insights into challenges and opportunities that come with a changing workplace. We will discuss situations in which you encountered workplace conflict as a result of change. Join us in a space where we will continue to advance on conflict management by destigmatizing workplace conflicts and sharing lessons learned.

13 November 2019 – 12:30 to 2 p.m.

How can organisations and communities, including UN system entities and academic institutions, best implement the Sustainable Development Goals and environmental initiatives in effective, meaningful ways? How can they build and realize sustainability reporting, practical initiatives and programs, and strategies that are unique to their environment, and encourage culture change and participation from their communities and colleagues?

This interactive session, held in collaboration with UN and University of Geneva (UNIGE) partners, aims to bring you insights and best practices on how we can move towards more sustainable organisations. You’ll have the chance to discuss and ask questions to various practitioners across a range of themes, from reporting and developing a strategy, to internal initiatives and participation, and hear their reflections on the challenges, opportunities and lessons learnt in implementing sustainability initiatives.

UN Geneva Dragons’ Den Challenge

During the engagement sessions held with staff earlier this year, UNOG staff members called for a forum to be established where ideas could be freely pitched and assessed. Inspired by the television show with the same name, we are launching the Dragons’ Den, a forum designed for UNOG staff to present their innovative ideas to UNOG staff/colleagues. Selected teams will have the chance to pilot their projects under the guidance of a mentor, before having the opportunity to present their ideas to UNOG senior managers and staff at the Dragons’ Den pitching session on 17 October 2019.

Please join us for the event on 17 October, where audience members will have the chance to take part, ask questions and vote for their favorite idea.

Seeing What’s Next: How Seismic Shifts in the Commercial World impact International Organisations.

Many of the technological and social trends in motion today will have a great impact over the next 30 years. In this session with Professor Howard Yu, we’ll examine some of the coming changes in our lives—from virtual reality in the home and an on-demand economy, to the embedding of artificial intelligence in many areas of professional and personal life—and how these can be understood as the result of a few long-term, accelerating forces. These larger forces will transform the way we work, interact, learn and communicate.

Professor Yu, the author of the book Leap: How to Thrive in a World Where Everything Can Be Copied, will explore “the inevitable,” and consider how and international organisations like the United Nations must lead differently across many areas, be it digital services, new operating models, new talent acquisition, or new ways to innovate. Join us for the chance to learn and discuss together.

This event is held at the Knowledge & Learning Commons, in collaboration with the Learning services at the UN International Computing Centre.
