United Nations Day

Every year on October 24, the United Nations Day holiday is honoured. It honours the formal creation of the United Nations in 1945. On this day, the majority of signatories to the UN Charter, including the five permanent members of the Security Council, did so, officially establishing the UN. The Day was first observed in 1948. In 1971, the UN additionally urged the member states to observe it as a national holiday.

What is UN


Immediately following the conclusion of World War II, the United Nations was established. It succeeded the unsuccessful League of Nations with the intention of stopping new hostilities. It is an intergovernmental organisation whose principal duty is to uphold international stability.

It is essential for developing international cooperation, accomplishing state cooperation, and acting as a centre for global coordination.

On April 25, 1945, fifty states gathered in San Francisco to begin drafting the UN Charter, which was eventually approved on June 25, 1945. The organisation's goals are to preserve world peace, defend international law, protect human rights, provide humanitarian help, and promote sustainable development. The UN presently includes 193 countries as members, up from 51 at the time of its founding.

Among the different UN bodies are the General Assembly, Security Council, Economic and Social Council, Trusteeship Council, International Court of Justice, and UN Secretariat.

It also has several different specialised organisations that regulate many different industries. Among them are the World Food Program, the World Food Bank, the World Health Organization, Unesco, and Unicef.

What do we do on United Nations Day?

On United Nations Day, there are no restrictions on what we can achieve. International attendees congregate and participate in a range of festivities-related activities.

In some areas, parades are organised to unite people of all nationalities in joy. People can receive an invitation to share their favourite dinner with friends and relatives travelling from different nations. A unified celebration is based on the idea that we should come together as a single people to celebrate our diversity and our respect for other people's cultures and beliefs.
