Shaping our future together

The year 2020 marked a a special anniversary for the United Nations: 75 years from the signing of the UN Charter in San Francisco.

In 1945, soon after the end of the Second World War, nations worldwide decided to change the course of history and took the commitment to work together for peace. And this is the same path that the European Union chose to follow only a few years later.

In the last decades, the EU and the UN have been working hand in hand for peace, dialogue, and cooperation. Whether individually or together, they both promote Human Rights, the rule of law, sustainable development, and fighting climate change. They also support negotiated diplomatic solutions to conflicts as well as security and stabilisation through their military and civilian missions. The EU is also committed to preserving and strengthening multilateral relations with its partners across the globe, with the United Nations at its core.

The Covid-19 pandemic is once again showing how global challenges can be tackled and overcome only through global, coordinated action.

The European Union has and always will be in support of cooperation - The European Union has and always will be in support of the United Nations.
