“The United Nations is the world’s platform for peace and progress.”
– UN Foundation Founder & Chairman Ted Turner

The United Nations serves a unique and essential role in the world, providing a platform for cooperation that transcends borders and boundaries.

Simply put: The world comes to the UN to work together on urgent, important issues. But the UN also goes to the world – responding to disasters, aiding refugees, promoting human rights, fighting disease, and much, much more.

The UN’s vital work is helping create a more peaceful, just world – benefiting us all.
