In the context of the start of the 67th session of the United Nations General Assembly, the Department of Public Information and the Department of Peacekeeping Operations have launched a digital campaign on UN Peacekeeping, “A global effort to advance peace on the ground”.
The campaign is published on the UN Peacekeeping website and demonstrates how individual Member State contributions to peacekeeping benefit people on the ground.
As part of the campaign, you can visit an interactive “Wall of Faces”, click on a face and find out the story behind the image. Each image highlights the impact that a Member State/Mission has had on the ground. You can then click further and access the local mission content to find out more. The “Wall of Faces” is available in all six UN official languages.
The campaign also includes updated global maps showing personnel contributions to military and police by country, and a Flickr album of stories of the people the UN works to help and the Member States contributing to peace.
The Brussels based United Nations Regional Information Centre for Western Europe - UNRIC provides information on UN activities to the countries of the region. It also provides liaison with institutions of the European Union in the field of information. Its outreach activities extend to all segments of society and joint campaigns, projects and events are organized with partners including the EU, governments, the media, NGOs, schools and local authorities.
