#OnlyTogether: a campaign from the United Nations and Verified

No community can truly get back to normal in isolation. But if different countries move at different speeds then there is no guarantee that life will ever be the same. This is a race against a virus, not against each other. The campaign #OnlyTogether was launched on March 11 and calls for fair and equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines around the world.

Global call for creatives

The United Nations Verified campaign is calling for creatives around the world to share content ranging from photos, short videos, gifs, or pieces of original art that represents what you most look forward to doing again once the pandemic is over, using the hashtag #OnlyTogether. Your submission can be based on your personal goals for after the pandemic, or your thoughts about what your community or your country is looking forward to. The UN is looking for work that feels hopeful and positive for our future.
