THE GUARDIAN OF LONDON, ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST PRESTIGIOUS NEWSPAPERS, HAS ISSUED THIS REQUEST OF ALL STUDENTS WHO BELIEVE IN THE IMPORTANCE OF THE UNITED NATIONS; WRITES THE NEWSPAPER – “At the end of this year, Ban hands over the baton as UN secretary general. What was his greatest achievement? Or failure? We want your views!

… What do you think Ban Ki-moon will be remembered for? Will it be his attempt to hold the world to account with the global goals, or the halving of child deaths inspired by the MDGs? Or has his term in office been overshadowed by the UN’s failures? We’d like to hear your thoughts. Submit a response of 250 words or fewer and we’ll publish the best ones. Keep your response clear and concise, avoiding development or academic jargon. Email your response todevelopment@theguardian.com with “Students Speak” in the subject line. Please include your name, the country in which you live, and the university or college you attend. Submissions close at 6pm BST on 7 October.
