In addition, DPI is increasingly using social Media to deliver information to youth about UN events and the work of the UN. Finally, it offers multiple opportunities throughout the year for youth to participate in live interactions with senior UN officials, including the Secretary-General, Messengers of Peace and other youth who are active in searching for solutions to global problems.
