Why did we welcome @BTS_twt  into the @UN ? Check out my interview with @nbcaaron  and his exploration into the positive ripple effects of their activism for kindness towards ourselves, each other and our planet.

@UNOCHA 's @DavidGressly  has seen the worst man's inhumanity to man before his eyes during his over 40 year-career. In the new episode of Awake At Night, he shares what drove him to devote his life to helping the most vulnerable in some of the most fragile places on earth.

Happy #UNDay ! 🎉🇺🇳 As the @UN  turns 76, we continue to work for a more peaceful, sustainable, just & humane world. I am especially proud to work alongside my colleagues who devote their lives to saving lives and rescuing our planet.

So sad for these children. Iran has suffered one of the worst COVID-19 outbreaks in the Middle East.

More than half the population of Afghanistan will face acute food insecurity due to drought, conflict, #COVID19  & the economic crisis. To meet the scale of needs, the @UN  will need to mobilize resources at unprecedented levels.

@antonioguterres  strongly condemns the ongoing military coup d’état in Khartoum & all actions that could jeopardize #Sudan ’s political transition & stability. He calls for the immediate reconstitution of the governing arrangements provided for under the Constitutional Document.

Misinformation is causing global harm by hampering our ability to make progress on many of the world’s most pressing issues. During Global Media and Information Literacy Week, #PledgetoPause  & take time to verify facts before you share something online.

"Food security has all but collapsed... Millions of Afghans will be forced to choose between migration & starvation unless we can step up our life-saving assistance." -- @WFPChief  @UN  mobilized to deliver but needs urgent, sustained funding.

"There is always room for debate around opinions. There is no room for debate around facts. We need to make lying wrong again." -- @antonioguterres  calls on everyone to fight misinformation and hatred.

What have we learned in 18 months of our work fighting the #COVID19  infodemic? Join us today at 9 am ET as we talk about the lessons we can share & the importance of life-saving comms during a crisis, as we try to end this pandemic.

"We thought the world has stopped, but it continues to move forward. Every choice we make is the beginning of change." How moving to witness @BTS_twt  speaking at the #UNGA  & hear their very special #GlobalGoals  dedicated song + music video recorded here at the @UN . #BTSatUNGA

This @BTS_twt  compassionate 'love myself' message + campaign with @UNICEF  is so needed at this toxic time of social media-fueled insecurity and anxiety. #globalcitizen 

“So people have been eating roots and flowers and plants instead of a normal steady meal." “The lack of food will mean that people will start to die.” - @UNReliefChief  #Ethiopia 

I am honored to be appointed by @antonioguterres  as the next @UN  Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications. Communicating the ideals and values of the United Nations has never been more urgent. I will remain forever committed to @Refugees .

The sad reality that is the state of our #COVID19  world. @mvankerkhove ⁩ @WHO ⁩

Misinformation has become another risk factor that is "really allowing the virus to thrive.” @mvankerkhove  @WHO 

"Today I am announcing a new @UN  Communications Response Initiative to flood the Internet with facts & science while countering the growing scourge of misinformation -- a poison that is putting even more lives at risk." - @antonioguterres
