icflix and the United Nations have collaborated on a television series that reports on the work of the UN and its Agencies across the world.
The three to five minute features illustrate the UN peacekeeping efforts and projects aimed at reducing poverty and human suffering, fighting disease, providing humanitarian assistance and stimulating growth.
Along with the UN in Action series, 20-minute documentary features by 21st Century aim to put a spotlight on some of the world’s forgotten stories, where they have reported from more than 90 countries around the world covering global issues such as conflict and human rights violations; natural disasters; women’s issues; poverty and development; refugees; drugs and crimes; music and culture; climate change and the environment.
The documentaries will be available worldwide in English and French languages.
“Many people are unaware of the on-the-ground work carried out by the United Nations and it’s Agencies,” said Carlos Tibi, CEO icflix. “It is our aim to spotlight the important agenda of the United Nations to raise awareness of important issues of our time,” Tibi added.
