The deputy mayor and councilor for Education, Cooperation, Civil Rights and Feminism, Sandra Castro, together with Eimys Ortiz, member of the Association for the United Nations in Lleida, commemorated United Nations Day this morning raising the organization's flag in the courtyard of la Paeria. The facade of La Paeria will be lit up in blue this Saturday, when it will be 75 years since the entry into force of the United Nations Charter.
These two symbolic acts are part of the public awareness campaign promoted by the UN to remember the importance of respect for human rights and the promotion of peace everywhere, an objective in which the action of local councils is also fundamental.
The day of the United Nations is aimed at publicizing the actions carried out by the United Nations in the different countries of the world and adding new supports to its work. The commemoration of United Nations Day opens up a space for deliberations and exhibitions on the goals of the organization, as well as for debate on major issues such as world peace.
The deputy mayor and councilor for Education, Cooperation, Civil Rights and Feminisms, Sandra Castro, has explained that the action that is being taken in Lleida is being done in town councils 'everywhere because "from the local level we want to promote the link with the culture of Peace". From the City Council, there are different councils that work in a transversal way with the Sustainable Development Goals and the government action is also oriented towards the monitoring of these goals.
