The United Nations: Working For Us All
(14 minutes) USA
Director/Producer: Ingrid Kasper
The United Nations and its agencies: everyone knows something of their work. But how many realize the role multilateral organizations actually play in the world today? From weather forecasting to humanitarian relief, from peacekeeping to fighting poverty and HIV/AIDS – including interviews with prominent figures such as UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan – this video, narrated by Michael Douglas, UN Messenger for Peace, outlines how the UN system shapes all of our daily lives.
