NEW YORK/SARAJEVO, September 3 (FENA) – The United Nations is marking its 75th anniversary at a time of great challenge, including the worst global health crisis in its history.
“Will it bring the world closer together? Or will it lead to greater divides and mistrust? Your views can make a difference,” it is noted in the campaign.
Covid-19 is a stark reminder of the need for cooperation across borders, sectors and generations.
“Everything we do during and after this crisis must be with a strong focus on building more equal, inclusive and sustainable economies and societies that are more resilient in the face of pandemics, climate change and the many other global challenges we face.” said the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres.
“UN75: 2020 and Beyond” is the title of the campaign, and the goal is to gather millions of participants around the world and talk about shaping a new future, through an online survey on un75.online.
During the past period, we talked to people from different public and social spheres, who shared experiences about the impact and consequences of isolation on their careers and lives, social problems that the epidemiological crisis has brought.
“In what ways did the pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus affect the daily life and functioning of societies? Can the economic, social, health measures used in response to the pandemic be used for a better, stronger, more inclusive recovery and building more resilient systems?,” are some of the questions that arose after the emergence of coronavirus pandemic,” said the Office of the UN Resident Coordinator in BiH.
As a key event within this initiative, the United Nations announced a conversation in which issues of media operation, health system functionality and decisions of the authorities during the pandemic, as well as the economic recovery of the state and society, will be raised by relevant experts in these areas.
