‪#‎ThrowbackThursday‬ Thaddeus Crapster, the only surviving member of the international team of architects who designed the UN complex in New York, shown at work studying one of the preliminary plans for the building in 1947 (left) and visiting his team's creation this past week (right).

Marking this year's UN 70th anniversary, Mr. Crapster took a walk around the newly-renovated UN Headquarters on Wednesday and shared vivid and fascinating memories of his part in the making of the UN as young architect back from serving in World War II.
The architects of the UN believed that modernism transcended national and cultural differences and they were determined to demonstrate this to the world by conceiving together "a workshop for peace," an expression often used by the team's leader, Wallace Harrison.

The UN turns 70 this year -- that's 70 years working for people all around the world.
Around 800 women die each day from causes related to pregnancy or childbirth.
In 2010, Secretary-General launched the Every Woman Every Child global effort to to improve the health of hundreds of millions of women and children around the world -- and save the lives of the most vulnerable.

Our world boasts a wealth of natural resources that contributes to food security and economic growth.
However, if we continue our current consumption and production patterns, we will exhaust the resources we do have. To address this issue, there should to be investments in clean and sound technologies.

Introduction
Founded after the end of the Second World War, the United Nations is an international organization made up of 193 Member States committed to maintaining international peace and security.

Every day the UN works to tackle global challenges and deliver results for those most in need.

Giving life-saving support to populations hit by humanitarian crises, helping build and keep the peace in conflict-ridden areas, supporting governments and their citizens to advance development and fight poverty, and promoting human rights worldwide are the core pillars of the work of the United Nations and the mandates it receives from its Member States.
