CELEBRATE THE UN’s 75TH ANNIVERSARY
Help Celebrate the United Nations 75th Birthday with Peace Child International
– Uniting Nations, Uniting Peoples, Uniting Faiths, Uniting Generations –
The last 75 years have seen the human family make great progress – much of it due to the UN’s global Thought Leadership. But the UN has decided NOT to celebrate its 75th Anniversary because, as our Balance Sheets show, a mountain of challenges remain to be solved, and the organisation itself teeters on the edge of bankruptcy. So, instead, the UN is reaching over the heads of its member governments and asking “We, the Peoples…” to Join A Conversation about what kind of future we want? Are we on track to achieve it? – and – What kind of UN do we need to deliver that future?
Peace Child International has worked with the UN for almost 40 years – and we have built this website to help schools and communities get involved in that conversation in a fun way. For the UN’s 50th Anniversary, our global network of young people created A World in Our Hands: a Children’s History of the Past, Present and Future of the UN – which got a lot of people thinking positively about the UN.
These newly-designed Peace Child concerts invite you to engage in intergenerational dialogues – to get young and old members of your community to look back at the UN’s achievements of the last 75 years, and look forward at the challenges of the next 75. We offer a short (20-min.) – medium (1-hour) – or long-form (2-hour) Concert. Or you can adapt our 20-minute Time Travel TV Chat Show which explores both the Future we want and the future we do NOT want. But you can’t just ‘do’ our scripts parrot-fashion. You have to translate, adapt or totally re-write each script to incorporate local ideas.
Also, the UN would love you and all your friends, co-workers, classmates or family members to fill out their Online Survey. Also look at the UN’S 75th Anniversary Toolkit and Feedback form, which allows you to feed any ideas you come up with back to the UN.
