Seventy-five years ago, world leaders, recoiling from the horrors of war, sought to secure a future free from fear and free from want. The result was the United Nations, established in the name of “We the Peoples.” From its very origins, civil society and social movements were its strong partners and helped to shape the vision and mission of the UN.
The UN2020 Campaign and the Feminist and Women’s Movement Action Plan for Beijing + 25 recognize in this anniversary year the importance of reinforcing and strengthening UN institutions, norms and processes, while increasing its accountability and accessibility to civil society.
What are the UN’s achievements? How has it affected people’s lives? Go to the online Thank You UN book and read the messages people have left.
