UN DAY 2022 – Friday 21 October 2022, UNGSC Brindisi

Dear Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to invite you to celebrate our contribution to the United Nations, for UN Day 2022. 

To celebrate our strength in diversity, I encourage you all to attend, possibly in your national attire, an all-staff international lunch buffet – with cuisine from around the world, which will be held on Friday, 21 October. 

This year’s UN Day will also be an opportunity to highlight and honor the involvement, achievements and outstanding efforts of our colleagues and friends who have participated in critical missions, in service of the United Nations. I hope that you will join me in recognizing our colleagues who returned from Ukraine. 

I also invite the children of UNGSC staff members to participate in an Art Exhibition on “What does the UN mean to you?”. All the artworks will be showcased at the buffet lunch. I look forward to seeing the wonderful creative work of our children.
