In August, interns serving at United Nations Headquarters over the summer gathered at the newly-renovated Economic and Social Council Chamber in New York for a time-honored tradition – a group photo with the Secretary-General. Following the photo session, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon spoke to the interns, concluding with an inspiring message for the young people: to be citizens of a global world.

Watch the full video, recorded by the UN Social Media Team’s intern, on YouTube.
