The UN at 75.  Children's faces.

To celebrate its 75th anniversary, the UN is reaching out to citizens around the globe. Secretary General Guterres wants to hear from us. What are our priorities, how can we best address them, and what role does the UN play in tackling the many issues before us.

So, what do you think are the most critical issues facing our world? Climate change? International migration? Armed conflict? Rising inequality? How can we begin to resolve the issues that mean the most to you?

Take the UN survey and make your voice heard. And, hear what people around the world are saying about the challenges and solutions they will be working toward.
