UN 70 years

Dear UN Depository Librarians,
Friends and distinguished colleagues,

Untitled attachment 00100

On the occasion of its 70th anniversary, the United Nations has produced many resources for the event. This coming UN Day on October 24 (next Saturday) many events are happening around the world and some of you may want to organise your own.

Out of a large quantity of available resources, we would like to bring your attention to a few notable ones:

  • UN70 Website: http://www.un.org/un70/en (also available on other official languages, choose on menu bar)
  • UN70 poster, available in all six official languages:
  • UN at 70 Video Products:
    • Fanfare for all Peoples (TRT 3’05”) – This new short filmmarking the 70th anniversary of the United Nations premiered at the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly, available in six languages:
  • The UN at 70: Did You Know? (TRT 0’44”) For 70 years, the United Nations has strived to make a difference in the lives of people across the globe. This short piece highlights how the UN works on the front lines of peace and security, human rights, and development, and a special message from UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

If you have any questions about these resources, please contact us.

Please note that there are special and separate guidelines for use of UN70 logo (Note: this links to a PDF).

We wish all of you a happy UN Day !!!

We also would be much appreciative, if you could share with us a short written summary and, if possible, also a few photos of your own UN70 and/or UN Day event(s). We would like to share them with our community of  UN depository libraries around the globe.

With our very best regards,
