Children's holiday games at the UN in Vienna
Children are invited to come to the UN in Vienna in August to take part in our holiday games (Ferienspiel) programme. The one and a half hour session includes interactive games focused on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals which aim to end poverty, protect our environment and promote peace.
World Day against Trafficking in Persons
"Armed conflicts and humanitarian crises expose those caught in the crossfire to increased risk of being trafficked," said Yury Fedotov, Executive Director of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), at an event to mark the World Day against Trafficking in Persons, held every year on 30 July. This year UNODC is raising awareness about the vulnerabilities behind every case of human trafficking.
Sport for Peace
Sport is a powerful tool for peace. It is based on universal values such as fair play, teamwork, tolerance and equality. The UN Postal Administration has partnered with the International Olympic Committee and the UN Office on Sport for Development and Peace to issue colourful stamps featuring several Olympic sports ahead of the 2016 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in August.
