UNITED NATIONS DAY COMMEMORATION EVENTS

On 24 October 2020, the world commemorates 75 years since the founding of the United Nations after the horrific events of World War II. In 1945, as the world was trying to recover from a war that saw the deaths of at least 60 million people, 50 heads of state came together to try to create a new global organisation that would work together through multilateral cooperation to avoid the wars of the past and usher in a new era of peace 4. The Charter of the United Nations (UN Charter) was signed on 26 June 1945 and the UN was officially created. Join us as we celebrate by following our discussions on social media.

Model UN Debates

Although the world continues to affirm its position of never repeating the atrocities committed in World War II, and has supported the liberation of many countries from colonialism, and apartheid in South Africa, instabilities and human rights violations still plague different regions of the world despite the presence of multilateral approaches. The Model UN Debate provides a platform for young people to engage in discussions and to better reflect the needs and the state of the world today.

Youth Dialogue – The Future We Want. The Future We Need.
