UNPA is celebrating this year’s United Nations Day with the issuance of the ground-breaking UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) stamps and booklets. The United Nations Day marks the anniversary of the entry into force of the UN Charter in 1945, and 24 October has been celebrated as United Nations Day ever since. The creation of the United Nations brought the peoples and nations of the world together to promote peace, human rights and social and economic development. In this spirit of solidarity, the world leaders adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to succeed the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) at the historic 2015 UN Summit.
