Happy United Nations Day

UNFlagsIn addition to being Make a Difference Day, today is also the annual United Nations Day. It is the birthday of the establishment of the UN on October 24, 1945. Throughout the world, today is marked by meetings of world leaders, international discussions, exhibits, and an international concert in the General Assembly Hall.

Suggestions from the UN as to how we might commemorate the day (and it needn’t be only today, of course) include:

In your community:

  • Arrange a seminar, involving civic leaders and media representatives.
  • Ask your city or state authority to issue a UN Proclamation or a UN stamp.
  • Clean up your neighbourhood.
  • Volunteer time to a local charitable organization.
  • Make a new friend. Plant a tree.

Now do you have something you’d like to do with your afternoon?
