    Rededication to the three goals or pillars of the UN: security, development and human rights. Recognition that our globalized world requires multilateral cooperation and solutions.

    That's pretty abstract stuff, but maybe you could draw a globe with symbols for security (a smiling policeman), development (a building) and human rights (?) surrounding it.
