In Davos, Switzerland earlier this year, Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon urged business leaders to unite the issues of climate change, water, energy, and hunger. “We have to be prepared to make major changes…in our lifestyles, our economic models, our social organization, and our political life,” he said.

From September 3-5, 2011, over 300 NGOs, including SimplyHelp Foundation, will assemble in Bonn, Germany for the 64th Annual United Nations Conference for Non-Governmental Organizations associated with the Department of Public Information to address issues on environmental development, poverty, and sustainability. The theme of this year’s conference will be “Sustainable Societies; Responsible Citizens,” and will feature workshops, exhibits, and plenary sessions on related topics.

Each year, SimplyHelp Foundation recruits 3 Youth Ambassadors to assist in advocacy efforts at the Annual UN DPI meeting. Ambassadors will have the opportunity to gain valuable leadership experience and advocate for sustainability and poverty issues along with other representatives of United Nations Department of Public Information NGOs, and will network with service and advocacy groups. The UN DPI conference is an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in international non-profit work, global politics, and issues relating to sustainability, economics, and diplomacy.


Youth Ambassadors should be strong leaders with a desire to participate in global humanity development, and should be at least 18 years of age, citizen of UN members. The selected student will be responsible for his/her own travel expenses.
