TEDxPlaceDesNations took place at the Palais des Nations, UN Geneva, on 11 February 2016.
This second edition showcased remarkable stories of scientists and peacemakers, innovators and humanitarians transforming lives of people around the globe and finding solutions to shaping tomorrow's world.
2015 marks the global celebration of the 70th anniversary of the United Nations, which honours the historic breadth of the Organization's development, security and human rights work. The UN70 celebration also aims to unite Member States, global civil society and the many individual women and men working in common cause to enable a strong UN to realize a better world. For this occasion, Heads of State, Ministers, and other leading figures who lend their support to the UN have recorded messages with UNTV Geneva to share their thoughts about the UN's anniversary, their hopes for the UN's future and about what the UN has meant to them or to their country.
Watch the staff of the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) tells their stories about their works in Palais des Nations and beyond. This compilation of videos are available in UNOG 2014 Annual Report. http://www.unog.ch/annualreport
