Background of the day

Following the destruction of WWII, the United Nations was formed in order to protect future generations from the scourge of war. One of its goals is to foster international collaboration in the face of global challenges, especially by promoting and fostering respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms for all people, regardless of race, gender, language, or religion.

By resolution 53/243, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Declaration and Programme of Action on a Culture of Peace in 1999, which serves as a universal mandate for the international community, particularly the United Nations system, to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence that benefits all humanity, including future generations.
