United Nations Global Communications Conference to be held in Salt Lake City
(KUTV) -- For the first time, the United Nations Global Communications Conference won't be held at its headquarters in New York.
It will be held in Salt Lake City in August of 2019.
"We have done tremendous work here to show what what is possible in building a sustainable community from climate goals to our affordable housing to the work we're doing to help those experiencing homelessness," Mayor Jackie Biskupski said.
The conference focuses on empowering sustainable cities and communities. It's part of its mission of world peace.
Utah Valley University and Salt Lake City collaborated to bring the conference to Utah.
