The UN Information Office (UNO) in Uzbekistan has developed, and as of the 6 April, will launch the ‘Talking UN’ film series. This series will feature a collection of films containing interviews with prominent UN representatives and national partners in Uzbekistan, in which they will discuss their work to achieve the five ‘generational opportunities’ as established by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon during his speech in January 2012.
The five generational opportunities highlighted by the Secretary-General include; sustainable development, the prevention of natural and man-made disasters, the assurance of world safety and security, the provision of support to countries and people in transition, and the promotion of gender empowerment.
Each ‘Talking UN’ episode, of which twelve have been planned, will be presented on the UN in Uzbekistan's website and will be uploaded on a bi-weekly basis. A new episode will feature in every upcoming UN Friday event and will be promoted on the UNO’s website, Facebook page and Twitter accounts.
The ‘Talking UN’ film series has been designed to provide insight into the perspectives and ideas of UN officials in Uzbekistan. It is part of the UNO’s work to ensure transparency and openness of the UN system, and the series will help to achieve this goal.
