Yesterday United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon joined Jon Stewart on The Daily Show where he talked about the importance of defending human rights, protecting civilian populations in areas of conflict, and promoting global cooperation on issues like terrorism.
The Secretary-General also talked about the power of individuals and called on young people to raise their voices to create the world we want. One great way to get involved is to tell world leaders what issues are important to you through the UN’s MY World survey.
The Secretary-General also brought along a blue peacekeeper helmet for Jon Stewart! Want to show your support for UN peacekeepers, too? Check out our Thank a Peacekeeper contest here.
