United Nations Day

Be a part of the UN Global Compact participant company staff activation this UN Day

We need all 100,000,000 of you to help make social media history on United Nations Day 24 October!

This year the United Nations celebrates its 75th anniversary, and the Global Compact its 20th.

We want you to help us celebrate both milestones by adding your voice to support global sustainability.

UN Day is on 24 October. The UN Global Compact will mark UN Day by asking you to take part in a simple social media activation on 24 October: add your photo to one of our photo filters that carry the key words from the UN Charter and share with your friends on your social media platforms using the hashtag #UnitingBusiness.

Join your 100 million co-staffers across the UN Global Compact network!

Here’s a UN Day Toolkit with simple ways you can learn about sustainability and the UN in the run-up to UN Day ion the 24th:

  • Share this video from our CEO & Executive Director Sanda Ojiambo encouraging staff to participate in the activation on 24 October.
  • Take the 30-minute UN Global Compact Academy course “How to Understand and Take Action on the Global Goals”, available in Chinese, English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish.
  • Take action – as an individual, a community or business – and track your impact via the UN’s ActNow campaign and mobile app.
  • Watch this SDG Media Zone session from Davos 2020: “Unleashing the Potential of a Purpose-Driven Workforce” to learn how engaging your staff on the SDGs makes for a solid business case.

Check back for more information about the social media activation on UN Day.

Please share any questions you may have about the toolkit. We’re looking forward to working with you! unday@unglobalcompact.org.
