Celebrating UN70

November 5, 2015

On Saturday 24 October, Interpeace was proud to take part in the United Nations 70th Anniversary celebrations in Geneva. The event marks a significant milestone in the history of the UN and honors the organization’s work on development, security and human rights.

Interpeace began life as a UN project in 1994, and after becoming an independent organization in 2000, we continue to work closely with the UN as a strategic partner.

Alongside the other events of the day Interpeace gave visitors the opportunity to show their support for peace by having their photos taken at a ‚Äúpeacebooth‚ÄĚ. Visitors, including Michael M√łller, Director-General of the United Nations Office at Geneva, posed holding signs with such slogans as ‚ÄúEveryone has a role to play in peace‚ÄĚ, ‚ÄúPeace is possible‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúI‚Äôm for Peace‚ÄĚ.

The peacebooth was a great success, drawing crowds throughout the day. Pictures from the day are available here.
