UN Day is 24 October 2020, the 75th anniversary of the day the UN Charter entered into force in 1945.
To mark its 75th year, the UN is running UN75 to gather people’s opinions about how the UN should develop in the future.
Tackling issues such as COVID-19, the climate crisis, inequality, new patterns of violence and the major changes we are seeing in population and technology in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals – our shared vision for the future – will require cooperation across borders, sectors and generations.
But just when we need collective action more than ever, support for global cooperation is flagging. In many countries, public trust in traditional institutions is in decline and relations between countries are under strain. Dialogue – and action – on global issues could not be more urgent.
What Will #UN75 Achieve?
Through #UN75 conversations, the UN aims to
- build a global vision of 2045 – its centenary
- increase understanding of the threats to that future
- support enhanced international cooperation to realise that vision.
During 2020 the UN75 campaign will initiate dialogues in all settings – from classrooms to boardrooms, parliaments to village halls. The aim is to reach as many people as possible: to listen to their hopes and fears; and learn from their ideas and experiences. Anybody can join the global conversation – physically or online, individually or as a group, in every region of the world.
What Will This Event Consist Of?
We will discuss the questions that the UN is asking within UN75. You will then be able to feed your ideas directly to the United Nations.
How do I join the conversation?
