International Day to End Violence against Women
25 November 2015
Secretary-General Message
The atrocity crimes being committed against women and girls in conflict zones, along with the domestic abuse found in all countries, are grave threats to progress. I am deeply concerned about the plight of women and girls living in conditions of armed conflict, who suffer various forms of violence, sexual assault, sexual slavery and trafficking. Violent extremists are perverting religious teachings to justify the mass subjugation and abuse of women.
Universal Children’s Day

Today, we reaffirm our obligation to do everything in our power to enable all children to survive and thrive, learn and grow, have their voices heard and reach their full potential.
World Philosophy Day 2015
19 November 2015
The conviction that philosophy can make an essential contribution to human well–being, to addressing complexity, to advancing peace stands at the heart of World Philosophy Day. The historian Henry Brooks Adams once joked: “Philosophy: unintelligible answers to insoluble problems.” Against this, UNESCO puts philosophy forward as a force for individual and collective emancipation. For to think, while reflecting on what it is to think, is to philosophize, and all of us do it constantly, driven by the truest motor of all human ingenuity – wonder.
