United Nations Day

United Nations Day is celebrated on October 24 every year. The date reminds us of the anniversary of the UN charter since 1945. Today, every person who is at least a little worried about the rights and freedom of people around the world should pay attention to the history of the organization!

History

The UN was created immediately after the Second World War to prevent subsequent wars and protect different segments of the population. The charter was adopted on April 25, entered into force on October 24 (hence the date of the holiday). The mission was complicated during the Cold War between the US and the USSR, but at its end it reached a new level, increasing the number of participants several times. During the work of the organization, it faced many obstacles, but managed to survive for the benefit of the population of the planet.

Every year there are concerts in honor of the UN Day. Even during the pandemic, the concert was held in a hybrid format and with a very small audience. Traditions will not be killed by any virus! The concert was attended by the Goyang Philharmonic Orchestra, pianists from Yungwook Yoo and K-POP groups, violinists Angela and Jennifer Chun.
