About UN Observances

The United Nations observes designated days, weeks, years, and decades, each with a theme, or topic. By creating special observances, the United Nations promotes international awareness and action on these issues. This section is used to honour and celebrate the United Nations observances. UN observances enable us also to embed human rights in a broader context.
