The 24th of October is United Nations Day, which commemorates the day in 1945 when the United Nations Charter went into effect. Every year, on United Nations Day, we have the chance to highlight our shared agenda and restate the UN Charter’s goals and ideals, which have guided us for the last 76 years. A concert to commemorate UN Day is usually performed at the Organization’s General Assembly Hall at Headquarters in New York. As the globe slowly recovers from the Covid-19 epidemic, the 2021 Concert is a plea to enhance international collaboration in the interests of both nations and peoples, in order to ensure a more peaceful and prosperous future for all.
CELEBRATIONS TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN 2021:
This year’s UN Day Concert will have a hybrid format, with part live and part pre-recorded performances, as well as a small crowd that will be kept at a safe distance. The performance is sponsored by the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Korea to the United Nations and will take place on Thursday, October 21, 2021 at 7 p.m. (EST) with the theme “Building Back Together for Peace and Prosperity.” Angela and Jennifer Chun, as well as soprano Youngok Shin, will sing live in the General Assembly Hall at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. During the occasion, pre-recorded movies starring noted singer Youngmi Kim, the Goyang Philharmonic Orchestra, and others will be shown.
SPEACIAL EVENT AT THE DUBAI EXPO 2020
In a hybrid style, UN Day will be commemorated as an Honor Day at the Expo, consisting of modest socially distant in-person activities and virtual events. The event will feature an official ceremony at the Al Wasl Dome, as well as a cultural performance and panel discussion with the Emirates Youth Symphony Orchestra from across the world (EYSO).
The UN will also host a physical exhibition showcasing pictures from the #TheWorldWeWant campaign, which was curated from over 50,000 submissions from over 130 nations.
