Pictures of the birthday

These are the international commemorations observed by UNESCO. The United Nations designates specific days, weeks, years and decades as occasions to mark particular events or topics in order to promote, through awareness and action, the objectives of the Organization. Usually, it is the Member States that propose these observances and the General Conference establishes them with a resolution. In 1950, the General Assembly approved the first international day — Human Rights Day — to be observed on 10 December in remembrance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights proclaimed on 10 December 1948.
