Ask the next UN Secretary-General a question!

You might have heard that this year, Ban Ki-Moon will be stepping down as the UN Secretary-General. The United Nations will be appointing his successor, and for the first time ever those candidates want to hear from you!

You can ask a question which might be put to the twelve UNSG hopefuls during a Global Townhall with all candidates for UN Secretary-General will take place on 12 July in the UN General Assembly Hall from 6:30-9:00pm NY time. It will be broadcast live across the world by Al Jazeera media network, made available free to all broadcast media and simultaneously streamed live on UN-WebTV.

The successful candidate will hold the Secretary-General role for up to ten years. Think about what is important to you now, and what you want to see change in the next decade and have your voice heard! Is it about the Global Goals and Agenda 2030? Maybe it's about youth engagement in the UN? Whatever it is, be heard!
