"Your World, Your Future: Voices of a New Generation"

The US Mission to the UN just launched an innovative interactive series entitled "Your World, Your Future: Voices of a New Generation" in which they're inviting young people around the world to lead the political dialogue. From December 2nd until the 14th the US Mission to the UN is welcoming anyone under the age of 21 to submit an answer to the following question either in writing (less than 250 words) or via YouTube (1 minute or less):

“What is the most vital challenge to international peace and security facing your generation? Tell the UN Security Council what issue you believe deserves more attention, and explain why it is important.”

Please view the launch video here.

The US Mission will select the three most compelling submissions and pose them as topics for debate amongst the UN Security Council at an event on December 21st. This event, hosted at the UN Headquarters in New York, will also be live streamed at www.un.org/webcast.
