U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon traveled to Hollywood to enlist its star power in the United Nation's ambitious campaign to end poverty, tackle climate change and promote a fairer more humane world – and he got an enthusiastic response from stars and top executives.Ban spoke at both events about the conflicts and crises in the world, the growth of terrorism, discrimination against women, gays and minorities, violations of human rights and poor governance – and the 17 U.N. goals adopted by world leaders last September to tackle the issues.At the lunch at Lear's home, Ban urged media executives to raise public awareness of the goals in the U.N. campaign to end extreme poverty, achieve equality for women, fight discrimination and preserve the environment by the 2030 deadline.Raymond said he came up with the idea after listening to the secretary-general five years ago challenge Hollywood to come up with United Nations-themed stories.
