About the initiative

In January 2020, the United Nations (UN) kicked off a series of events to commemorate its 75th anniversary focusing on the global conversation on international cooperation and the role of UN in building the future we want for our contemporaries and future generations.

The Republic of Belarus and the United Nations in Belarus have agreed to join efforts and work together in order to not only highlight the role of Belarus in creation of UN and draw the attention of the society to the unchanged relevance of the UN Charter as part of the UN75 campaign, but also to launch the nation-wide conversation involving young people on the most acute for Belarus and UN issues of sustainable development.

The Plan defines a series of joint commemorative, awareness-raising and educational activities involving a wide range of governmental agencies, non-governmental organizations, educational establishments, international organizations and embassies, and mass media.

Among the events to be conducted during the jubilee year there will be a solemn ceremony on the occasion of the first International Delegate's Day (April 25) established upon an initiative of Belarus by the UN General Assembly, a historic photo exhibition dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the International San-Francisco Conference, a presentation of the UN Charter in Belarusian language to be organized on June 26 - the day of its signing, and a jubilee concert on October 24 - the UN Day.

Nation-wide conversations involving Belarusian students of high schools and universities on the UN role and future in Minsk and the regions of Belarus in cooperation with the Ministry of Education will be an important item of the Plan.

More information on the youth campaign can be found on the Education for Sustainable Development Association website.

The people of Belarus already have a chance to vote for their future and the future of the United Nations. Join the conversation on the future you want on the UN’s website. Change the world for the better!
