Event description
United Nations Green, London's new landmark, deserves a welcome party so let's all give it one!

About this event

Join us to mark the arrival of United Nations Green in the heart of London, in the exact place where the United Nations first met in 1946. Let’s welcome together our newest landmark, one that links not to past pain and conflict but to a better future for all, to where crowds in a war-torn city gathered to watch the world’s diplomats arrive to set out a new path for humanity, to bring for all freedom from want, freedom from fear and the freedom to live in dignity. It's that important so please come and join us.

What’s happening?

For everybody

* Take your photo with the UN75 banner and Flags of the World display

And for exercise!

* Walk the Mandela Mile: from Nelson Mandela’s bust at the South Bank Centre to his statue in Parliament Square (yes, it's a mile), then arrive at UN Green with images of both to win your Nelson Mandela badge.

In 2018, to mark the centenary of Nelson Mandela’s birth, we created the Mandela Mile, the same route in reverse. Cities worldwide took up the idea, all now marking their own Mandela Mile. This year, we have rescheduled from 18 July, his birthday, to Welcome United Nations Green Party Day.
