Soon we will merge the Peace Portal communication with the one of GPPAC. You will be able to get bimonthly updates from a network of hundreds of CSOs active in the field, together with regular updates about what is going on in the Peace Portal. Highlighted content (like communities, blogs, etc) that you create on the Peace Portal will also find a bigger audience of enthusiastic peacebuilders as it will be shared on the GPPAC Newsletter and social media channels. Subscribing is very simple: just fill in this online form. You can follow GPPAC and the Peace Portal on Twitter and Facebook.

The post of UN Secretary-General is said to be the world's most impossible job. It is also one of the most important. The UN Charter was proclaimed in the name of "We the peoples of the United Nations". As the UN's top official, the Secretary-General embodies the high values of the Charter and represents the hopes and concerns of the world's seven billion people. All of us are affected by her or his decisions.
The 1 for 7 Billion campaign calls for a selection process that will find the best person for the job, irrespective of gender, region or background. To this end we are calling on governments, parliaments and civil society to put forward highly qualified candidates.
