Secretary General Messages
MESSAGE ON WORLD REFUGEE DAY
World Refugee Day is an expression of solidarity with people who have been uprooted from their homes by war or persecution. The latest figures from the UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR, show that at least 65.6 million people -- 1 of every 113 members of the human family -- have been forcibly displaced within their own countries or across borders.
MESSAGE FOR THE 100-DAY COUNTDOWN TO THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE
Upon taking up my duties as Secretary-General in January of this year, my very first act was to issue an appeal for peace -- a call on citizens, governments and leaders everywhere to put peace first.
MESSAGE ON THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF UNITED NATIONS PEACEKEEPERS
For nearly 70 years, UN peacekeeping has proven to be one of the international community’s most effective investments in peace, security and prosperity. Demand for UN peacekeepers has risen steadily over the years, and deployment is now near an all-time high. Peacekeeping has had a positive impact on the lives of millions of people around the world.
MESSAGE ON WORLD PRESS FREEDOM DAY
Journalists go to the most dangerous places to give voice to the voiceless. Media workers suffer character assassination, sexual assault, detention, injuries and even death. We need leaders to defend a free media. This is crucial to counter prevailing misinformation.
