Lions Day with the United Nations
Lions Clubs International will celebrate 74 years of partnership with the United Nations by holding two Lions Day with the United Nations events to take place in New York, USA and Vienna, Austria. These events will commemorate our long-standing relationship as a consultative NGO to the UN dating back to 1945 when Lion leaders were asked to help develop the NGO charter for the UN.
Join Lions, Leos, UN diplomats, dignitaries and other guests in the global conversation about this year’s theme, “Peace and International Understanding.” #LDUN
A Look Back at LDUN 2019
With a theme of “Protecting Our Future: The Health of Our Children,” Lions Day with the United Nations events took place in two cities: Geneva, Switzerland on April 10, 2019, and the 41st Annual Lions Day with the United Nations was held on March 9, 2019, at the UN Headquarters in New York City.
These important advocacy events created awareness in nearly 50 countries with a combined attendance of 1,000 delegates. Each event was as unique as the country in which it took place, but all featured keynote speeches by UN dignitaries, Lions, Leos and fellowship among the attendees.
Highlights included the announcement of the International Peace and Essay Contest Winners, a service project to benefit women and girls in celebration of International Women’s Day and a performance of the European Music Contest Winners.
