If you are between the ages of 15 and 29 share your views and suggestions about the UN’s future role through their global essay competition
This year, the United Nations is celebrating 75 years of changing the lives and advocating for the well-being and dignity of people around the world. And what better way to celebrate this than to involve the youth? The United Nations Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth, the Under-Secretary-General and Special Adviser to the Secretary-General on the Commemoration of the United Nations’ 75th Anniversary and Devex, a social enterprise and media platform for the global development community, are launching an Essay Competition for the young person on the topic ‘The Future We Want, The UN We Need’.
Share your views and suggestions about the UN’s future role by answering the question: Within the context of the “new normal” that has unfolded post-Covid-19, and as we plan and re-build to recovery, what does the future of the UN look like to you?
Pen your suggestions and be part the largest global conversation.
