However the concept note seems deeply revolutionary, for this pageant surely has substance according to its vision....
Miss United Countries is an international beauty pageant that stands for the advancing of sustainable developmental advocacy, policies and programs that promote the growth of the international community as to assist to eradicate current problems. Moreover the pageant promotes the unification of nations, sharing and exchanging experiences, and practices in order to bring about a progressive international community. The pageant stands for developing the world using beauty queens as advocates and ambassadors for their countries in matters to also do with social, economic activities, including tourism and culture The pageant is open for young unmarried ladies between the ages of 17-30 who would be contesting for the title of ‘’Miss United Countries ‘’. . The pageant compliments the none political vision and mission of the United Nations Organization.
Every year, after going through the ‘Miss United Countries Camp( contestants Camp ) in Philippines, on a pre-determined evening during each November, one female will be officially crowned as “Miss United Countries” in a glittering, red carpet event that will stand out as the single most sizzling evening on the world’s events calendar.The pageant provides a forum for today's young women to express their viewpoints, talents and accomplishments during the ensuing year and it also provides young women with a vehicle to further their personal and professional goals .The pageant however runs consistent with the newly set Sustainable development goals of the United Nations Organization held at the Summit on 25 September 2015, where world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change by 2030.
One of the main features of Miss United Countries Pageant is advancing the empowerment of women. Over many decades, the United Nations has made significant progress in advancing gender equality, including through landmark agreements such as the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). Gender equality is not only a basic human right, but its achievement has enormous socio-economic ramifications. Empowering women fuels thriving economies, spurring productivity and growth. Yet gender inequalities remain deeply entrenched in every society. Women lack access to decent work and face occupational segregation and gender wage gaps. They are too often denied access to basic education and health care. Women in all parts of the world suffer violence and discrimination. They are under-represented in political and economic decision-making processes.. Miss United Countries deeply addresses such challenges. It is a dynamic and strong champion for women and girls, providing them with a powerful voice at the global, regional and local levels.

2. To Advance the empowerment of women
