1 for 7 Billion campaign

We are facing global problems that threaten our survival, we need global solutions. The WFM/IGP is calling upon people to support us.

In 2014, WFM/IGP coordinated a network of over 750 civil society organisations under the 1 for 7 Billion campaign, which demanded that UN member states implement a more open and inclusive process for the selection and appointment of the UN’s Secretaries General.

The WFM/IGP is relaunching this campaign ahead of the selection of the next UN’s Secretary General in 2022. The goal of this campaign is to get the UN Security Council and the UN General Assembly to adopt resolutions that will formally recognize and require the merit-based selection and appointment of:

  • UN Secretaries General; and 
  • all senior roles in the United Nations Treaty Body system.

We need your support to ensure that this upcoming selection process and appointment is transparent, fair and inclusive. Donate now to help us get the best UN Secretary-General to lead 7 billion people through the challenges of the 21st century.
