UNITED NATIONS 75th ANNIVERSARY
The United Nation has been with us for three quarters of a century. Long may it continue. Positive change happens when communities work together. Through the many challenges that our planet and society has faced, the UN has stood by as a symbol of international co-operation. From promoting human rights to protecting the environment, and advancing global health and well-being with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the UN is stronger when it is united to ensure a future that works best for all who share our planet together, and for future generations.
This year marks a special anniversary for the United Nations: 75 years from the signing of the UN Charter. This historic moment created an international organization that has since worked to promote cooperation, dialogue, and peace around the world.
This is a digital event that will discuss Canada’s most challenging issues, from climate change to racial inequality to the COVID-19 pandemic, and solutions for building a more sustainable world. Hear from Canadian leaders and diverse public stakeholders on Canada’s role in achieving the UN’s Global Goals and the importance of international cooperation.

Rachel Bowen Pittman gave a superb round up of the work of the UN in the round with emphasis of racial discrimination, which must be eliminated. Rachel serves as Executive Director of UNA-USA, a grassroots movement of more than 20,000 Americans in over 200 chapters across the U.S. who are dedicated to supporting the work of the United Nations in communities, on campuses, and on Capitol Hill.
Jeshow Yang reminded us of the SDGs, the UN's sustainability development goals. He is also a bit of and expert on climate change. The unfortunate truth is that the US, China and India are not putting on the climate brakes. The UK is also undergoing a building boom, granting planning consents for houses that are not energy conscious.
Mayor, Terry Tomek is very supportive of the UN's work.
