World Day of Social Justice

Published By UNNGOF |  January 22, 2024

The General Assembly of the UN voted in 2007 to mark the 20th of February as World Day of Social Justice. This day highlights how essential a good standard of living is for all global citizens.

In this modern era of globalisation, it is clear that many citizens live in poverty, do not have adequate working conditions, and do not have access to the goods and services required for a healthy life. The 20th of February is a time to reflect on what needs to be done to reduce global inequalities for all.
