The general debate of the seventy-sixth session of the General Assembly will be held from Tuesday, 21 September, to Saturday, 25 September, and on Monday, 27 September 2021, pursuant to resolution 57/301. World leaders will discuss global issues. The theme "Building resilience through hope – to recover from COVID-19, rebuild sustainably, respond to the needs of the planet, respect the rights of people and revitalize the United Nations" has been proposed for the general debate at the seventy-sixth session, pursuant to resolution 58/126 (annex).  Held at the beginning of each session of the General Assembly, the General Debate provides an opportunity for world leaders to deliver a statement on global issues.
