COMMEMORATING THE UN’S 75TH ANNIVERSARY

 

Created 75 years ago in the ashes of World War II, the United Nations today remains true to its founding mission: to bring nations and peoples together to preserve peace and security, and improve lives everywhere.

Equality and the dignity of all people remain its guiding principles, enshrined in the UN Charter, signed in San Francisco on June 26 1945.

On this historic anniversary, let’s reflect on all that humanity has achieved together, and all that is still left to do. And let’s recommit to the vision of the UN Charter – it’s more relevant today than ever before.

In a new multimedia series from our partners Upworthy, see how the UN has brought the world together to drive progress over the past 75 years in areas like health and human rights.
