From emergency aid to Security Council vote – covering the gamut of UN activities around the world
The United Nations is indispensable as a forum for building a better world and solving complex and evolving challenges. It brings together all countries and different actors to take concerted action across the global community to make a positive difference in people’s lives and for the planet.
The Department of Global Communications tells this UN story across multiple platforms, digital and traditional, to build support for the aims and work of the United Nations. Through our global operations and offices in 60 countries, we reach millions of people with trusted, objective information and an inclusive message that enables the public, civil society, private sector and Member States to engage in the work of the United Nations.
Communicating in more than 80 languages, the Department embodies the United Nations principle of multilingualism, extending our impact to all corners of the world.
