Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg will speak—twice—at the United Nations Saturday.

During the 70th annual U.N. General Assembly session, Zuckerberg will first address the United Nations Sustainable Development Conference, and he will then deliver the keynote address at the United Nations Private Sector Forum.

Facebook said in an email to SocialTimes that Zuckerberg “will focus on the importance of connectivity in achieving the U.N.’s sustainable development goals.”

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel will also speak during the latter segment.

Facebook said Zuckerberg’s lunch address during the former segment is scheduled between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. ET, and it can be live-streamed here.
