As the UN Summit nears and world leaders prepare to gather in New York for the annual UN General Assembly, join LIVESTRONG and global leaders in a unique opportunity- a global conversation with the UN Secretary-General. The event will be streamed live on Facebook, Twitter, Livestream and UN Webcast from 11am-12pm EST tomorrow.
It?s your chance to get answers straight from the top, on the international issues you care about like how the issue of non-communicable diseases will be addressed in the UN Summit on the 19th of September. Your questions will be collected through Twitter, using the hashtag #asktheSG, and a moderator will put your questions to the Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon. Below are a few sample tweets:
UN Sec Gen: Will you hold world leaders accountable for outcomes of #UNSummit on #NCDs? #save36millionlives #asktheSG
Will you tell leaders that #NCDs are bad news for health and the economy and say yes to health at the #UNSummit? #asktheSG
#NCDs rank as a top global threat to economic development, yet receive >3% of health development funds. Why? #asktheSG
Please tweet these or other questions you may have for the UN Secretary General tomorrow from 11am-12pm EST, follow the hashtag #asktheSG and stay tuned to the blog for other great ways to get involved in the coming week.
