A WORLD OF CRISES, A WORLD OF SOLIDARITY
70 pictures to mark the 70th anniversary of the United Nations
From October 21st, #Dysturb, a group of photojournalists, will take to the streets of Paris by pasting up 70 large format pictures on the capital’s walls, to mark the 70th anniversary of the United Nations, which is on 24th of October.
44 photographers of 20 different nationalities have taken these pictures in all the continents.
This is the biggest operation ever launched by #Dysturb. These pictures will allow the general public, particularly those who do not read the newspapers, to experience the crises that are currently shaking our world, through the eyes of the biggest names of photojournalism. Every day these journalists, often with little means, endanger their lives to bear witness to what is happening around the world.
In the field, photojournalists work alongside the United Nations’ teams, where they face the same challenges. On the one hand, photojournalists bring back images and slices of life to bear witness and engage political actors and the public at large. On the other hand, the United Nations do everything they can to protect, assist and support hundreds of thousands of people in dire need, victims of conflicts, poverty, hunger, climate change and human rights violations.
The operation, organised in partnership with the United Nations Regional Information Centre (UNRIC), the French Ministry for Foreign Affairs and UNESCO, was made possible by the cooperation of several UN organisations:
- the Department of Peacekeeping Operations,
- the World Food Programme,
- the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees,
- the United Nations Environment Programme,
- the UN agency in charge of Palestine refugees,
- the International Organization for Migration
- the International Labour Organization.
