Der Tag der Vereinten Nationen erinnert an den 24. Oktober 1945, an dem die Charta der Vereinten Nationen in Kraft getreten ist. Er wurde am 31. Oktober 1948 eingeführt.
75 years working for peace
[..] With the ratification of this founding document by the majority of its signatories, including the five permanent members of the Security Council, the United Nations officially came into being.
There is no other global organization with the legitimacy, convening power and normative impact of the United Nations. Today, the urgency for all countries to come together, to fulfil the promise of the nations united, has rarely been greater.
The 75th anniversary
The year 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the United Nations and its founding Charter. This anniversary comes in a time of great disruption for the world, compounded by an unprecedented global health crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with severe economic and social impacts. But it is also a reminder that times of struggle can become an opportunity for positive change and transformation.
Europe turns UN blue, an initiative by UNRIC
To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Organization, the UN Regional Information Centre for Western Europe (UNRIC) has launched an initiative to „Turn Europe UN Blue“ with the support of Fabrizio Hochschild, Special Adviser to the Secretary-General on the Commemoration of the United Nations 75th anniversary.
For this pan-European campaign, in a continent where many of the UN’s founding members are located, more than 180 Europe’s iconic buildings (monuments, airports, museums and other landmarks) will be lit up blue – the official colour of the United Nations – on 24 October 2020. The initiative is a symbolic effort to unite global citizens; promote the universal language of peace, sustainable development and human rights.
