UN Marks 75th Anniversary

“The 75th anniversary of the United Nations falls in the middle of a global pandemic. Our founding mission is more critical than ever. On this anniversary, I ask people everywhere to join together. The United Nations not only stands with you…The United Nations belongs to you and is you: ‘we the peoples’.”

-António GuterresSecretary-General, United Nations

Happy United Nations Day! UN Day is a day marked to celebrate the UN and all that it does to create a better world. This year in particular is a special milestone: 75 years since its inauguration, the UN has seen the ending of wars, the curing of diseases, the growth of culture, and the unwavering pursuit of equality, development, and education. NHSMUN is proud to model the functions of such a profound body, and we look forward to inspiring a passion for global peace and betterment in all students with whom we have the pleasure of working each year.


In honor of its 75th anniversary, the UN published a series of 75 photos that showcase the work it has done throughout those years. Enjoy them at this link!
