    Event description

    Join the United Nations Association of New Zealand as we celebrate and reflect on the United Nations and its work at our annual UN Day reception.

    UN Day marks the anniversary of the entry into force in 1945 of the UN Charter. With the ratification of this founding document by the majority of its signatories, including the five permanent members of the Security Council, the United Nations officially came into being.

    There is no other global organization with the legitimacy, convening power and normative impact of the United Nations. Today, the urgency for all countries to come together, to fulfil the promise of the nations united, has rarely been greater.

    Join us on the Wellington waterfront at Shed 5 to mark this special occasion. Hear from Sir Kenneth Keith about his time on the International Court of Justice as he echos the urgency for all to re-commit to the goals of the United Nations. Canapes and drinks are included in the ticket prices. 

    The United Nations Association of New Zealand Te Roopu Whakakotahi Whenua o Aotearoa (UNA NZ) is a voluntary organisation committed to the ideals embodied in the UN Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the crucial role of the UN at the centre of multilateral cooperation to promote world peace and justice, and to eradicate poverty and hunger. We recognise that the UN has far to go to achieve its objectives, and are committed to its improvement. To learn more about UNA NZ visit our website or follow us on social media. 

    We will observe COVID-19 safety practices and if alert levels should change we will be in touch about postponement or cancellation. If you are not able to make the postponement date or the event is cancelled you will be refunded the cost of your ticket. As the venue has less than 100 people maximum capacity this event will go ahead at level 2.
