Message from Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations, Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO, and Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights on the occasion of World Press Freedom Day, 3 May 2015

Let Journalism Thrive!

This is the theme of World Press Freedom Day this year.

In 2015, States are accelerating to reach the Millennium Development Goals and shaping a new global sustainable development agenda. Freedom of expression and press freedom are essential to success at every level.
For peace to be lasting and development to be sustainable, human rights must be respected. Everyone must be free to seek, receive and impart knowledge and information on all media, online and offline. Quality journalism enables citizens to make informed decisions about their society’s development. It also works to expose injustice, corruption, and the abuse of power.
