UN INTERNATIONAL AWARENESS DAYS
The United Nations designates specific days, weeks, years and decades as occasions to mark particular events or topics in order to promote, through awareness and action, the objectives of the organization.
By creating special observances, the United Nations promotes international awareness and action on these issues.
The majority of observances have been established by resolutions of the United Nations General Assembly, although some have been designated by UN specialized agencies.
The United Nations also observes anniversaries of key events in its history.
Holding a charity fundraising event can be one of the most rewarding ways to show your support for these days.
