Twenty-fifteen is a critical year for the UN which needs to find "new ways of working" if it's to meet ambitious development goals, according to the head of the United Nations in Geneva.

Michael Moller, Director-General of the UN in the Swiss city, made his comments as the organisation prepares to mark its 70th anniversary with a grand open day at the historic Palais des Nations.

A key feature of the event is the unveiling of a sculpture featuring great blocks of stone from all 193 member nations on Saturday 24 October.
