Making the SDGs go viral. A behind-the-scenes look at how Dan Thomas helped the United Nations reach 90 million people.
Dan Thomas, Communications Director for the Office of the President of the UN General Assembly, 70th and 71st sessions and now working on a campaign with UNICEF to help child refugees, is well-versed in the field of communications. He has worked with organizations such as UNICEF, a public-private partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, BBC, and the United Nations. In this 4.5-minute video, we asked Dan to tell us about:
- the large task that he was given at the UN (timestamp 0:23),
- the obstacle that he faced (timestamp 1:50),
- the unique way that he overcame that obstacle, and the incredible results that were achieved (timestamp 2:55),
- and any social media advice that he has for us. (timestamp 3:57)
A special thank you to Dan Thomas for #SharingTheSuccess and to Connect4Climate
