UN Day: “70 years for We the Peoples”

On 25th October 2015, UN agencies based in Brussels, including UNESCO, set up an information and activities village at the Grand-Place to celebrate UN Day and mark the 70th anniversary of the Organization.

The focus of the 2015 edition of UN Day was “70 years for We the Peoples”, referring to the first three words of the UN Charter, which came into force on 24 October 1945.

UN Day provided an opportunity to exchange views with the public about UNESCO’s mandate and actions. UNESCO showcased in particular its activities in the field of cultural heritage such as the ongoing campaign #Unite4Heritage.

Moreover, the public could get involved in a series of activities such as a #UN70 Wall of Wishes, a dreamcatcher workshop, an insect tapas bar and a grasshopper farm.
