United Nations Day 2022

On October 24, 1945, the United Nations was created. Every year for the month of October, UNA-USA and its 200+ chapters around the country activate in their communities by hosting events centered around a certain global issue.

This year, we’re focusing on nourishing peace.

As we approach the UN’s 77th anniversary, this webpage will continue to be updated with more details on the theme and branding assets for chapters to utilize in their planning.

2022 Theme

The UN is uniquely equipped to deal with the major issues we face on a global level. One of these issues is food security.

Nourishing Peace, UNA-USA’s theme for UN Day 2022, aims to address how food security and peace are intertwined on the international scale. In 2022, we have seen firsthand how the scarcity of sufficient and nutritious food drives conflict and how violence threatens food supply chains all across the globe.

With this theme, chapters can support the work of the UN in addressing food security and peace at home and abroad.
