On 10 April 2021, please join people of action from around the world for an online event “75 Years of Action,” celebrating Rotarians’ lasting support of the United Nations and the Sustainable Development Goals.

Visit www.75yearsofaction.live to learn more and RSVP today.

 

The United Nations (UN) serves as a global forum where countries raise and discuss the most difficult issues, including problems of health, climate, education and peace. Since helping to charter the United Nations in 1945, Rotarians and the United Nations have worked together toward peace and addressing humanitarian issues worldwide.

In September 2020, the United Nations reaffirmed its commitment to leave no-one behind, protect our planet, promote peace, engage young people and be better prepared for future crises. These are opportunities for us to take action.

This event- a live premier of reflections and flash talks with first-hand experiences- will emphasize UN officials and Rotarians’ shared values and ongoing history of empowering and connecting people to opportunities.

Expected highlights:

  • Special interview with Tea Leoni, actress and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador
  • UN welcoming by Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General António Guterres
  • Calls to Action by High-Level Officials of various United Nations Offices and Agencies

This event is led by Rotary District 7230, home to the United Nations in New York, with the partnership of the Rotary Representative Network and Rotarians in New York, Rome, Paris, Geneva, Nairobi and beyond. Follow #75yearsofaction for updates.
