The Problem

The United Nations is launching the largest global conversation on the future we want to mark its 75th Anniversary in 2020. Today's youth are facing the worldwide pandemic, the climate crisis, mass shootings, and terrorism. We need collective global action, now more than ever, to protect the basic rights of all of humanity, and to protect our planet. The goal is international cooperation to help us realize a better world by 2045, the UN's 100th anniversary.

Our Plan

Take a one minute survey on the future you want at -- We Are Forces of Nature is sending a youth delegate to the high-level UN75 meeting, and the results will be communicated to the UN Secretary-General. We will call the 197 member states to action to create the future we want!
