This project follows after the group's appointment as President Special Envoy for Future Generations and Culture last July. BTS are slated to give a speech at the 76th United Nations (UN) General Assembly that's happening from 15 to 30 September 2021.
The 'Life Goes On' act has previously addressed the UN in 2018 and 2020, where they emphasised the importance of self-love and advocated for solidarity among young people.

As part of their continuous efforts to spread love, positivity and strength to youth worldwide, BTS have also been carrying out an ongoing campaign with UNICEF called LOVE MYSELF. The campaign, which was first launched in 2017, aims "to end violence and neglect while simultaneously promoting children and young people's self-esteem". Since its inception, it has raised close to USD 3 million worldwide.
