UN DESA Voice: Putting people at the heart of contentAs the year of realizing global commitments for a better world kicked off on 1 January, UN DESA introduced its revamped newsletter UN DESA Voice, aimed at closely covering international efforts to achieve the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, along with the regular work of the UN within the field of economic, social and sustainable development.
"We look forward to keep our readers up to date on the new sustainable development goals as they are implemented all around the world," said Guenther Gross, Chief of the Communication Section in UN DESA’s Strategic Planning and Communications Service; the team that issues the online monthly newsletter.
As the online newsletter of UN DESA turned 20 last year, the editorial team decided it was time to gain insights into the needs and wishes of its 125,000 online subscribers. Thanks to the feedback shared by some 1,000 responders, many of whom represent members of civil society organizations, several updates have been made to modernize the newsletter and to fulfil the needs of the readers.
The February issue of UN DESA Voice will share stories on youth and the sustainable development goals, on the Commission for Social Development, on SDGs implementation, migration data, trade statistics, indigenous languages and more.
