United Nations 75th anniversary – Over a million people have participated in global conversation

-

23 October 2020

To commemorate the United Nations 75th anniversary, UN Secretary-General António Guterres launched, in January 2020, a global conversation on  ‘the future we want’. Everyone in this world was invited to participate.

UN75 invites people everywhere to imagine the future they want and contribute ideas on how to make it a reality, building a better and more sustainable world, for all. The initiative aims to listen to the global public, with particular focus on youth, marginalized communities and new audiences.

To date, over a million people from all countries and all walks of life have had their say. Their answers provide unique insights into what the public wants at this challenging time for the world.

The United Nations was officially established on October 24, 1945, by 51 countries. It is the result of the initiatives taken by the governments who fought the second world war against Germany and Japan.

As of 2020, 193 countries are members of the United Nations. The United Nations Day is celebrated on 24 October each year.

When countries become members of the United Nations, they agree to accept the obligations of the UN Charter, an international treaty that sets out basic principles of International Relations.

The Preamble of the UN Charter asserts that ” We the peoples of the United Nations (are) determined to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small.”

The Basic principles of the UN Charter are:

  1. To maintain international peace and security
  2. To develop friendly relations among nations
  3. To cooperate in solving international problems
  4. To promote respect for Human Rights

Members of the UN rich or poor, big or small, with differing political views and social systems, all can voice their opinion and vote in the process. One of the essences of the UN is, apart from nation-states, it also equally referred to the interest and needs of the people as well.
