유니세프 60주년 (2000~2006)

2006.12.27
At the close of the 20th century, the world was a vastly more complicated place than when UNICEF was founded, in 1946. To meet the challenges of the new millennium, the world needed a new vision, a set of goals to unite around. The Millennium Development Goals grew out of the Millennium Summit held at the United Nations, becoming the largest gathering of world leaders in history. The Goals were to serve as a blueprint for global development toward 2015, towards a common global destiny. Children’s lives are affected by each of the eight goals, and fulfilling them lies at the center of everything UNICEF does, in conjunction with thousands of partners worldwide. UNICEF works to reduce child mortality, ensuring that millions need not die from easily preventable or treatable diseases. We work to eradicate the plague of poverty and the exploitation of children as laborers, sex workers or soldiers. At the United Nations Special Session on Children, youth participation came to the fore, as young people took to the General Assembly and addressed delegates for the first time. UNICEF works to ensure every child’s right to an education, every boy and every girl. Only by achieving universal primary education can the cause of humanity advance. As UNICEF’s 60th anniversary approached, a new executive director, Ann M. Veneman, took the helm. Under her leadership ‘Unite for children’ emerged as the new strategy for achieving the Millennium Development Goals for children. ‘UNITE FOR CHILDREN UNITE AGAINST AIDS’ became the first campaign launched under this banner, as today it is children and young people who are most vulnerable to the chaos and destruction caused by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. What began as a temporary experiment 60 years ago has grown to become the world’s leading agency for children. Today UNICEF is active in over 190 countries, uniting people and partners to make the world a better place for future generations. Sixty years is but a blink of an eye in the course of history, but in that brief span of time the world has become a different place for children entirely. With the Millennium Development Goals as our guide, UNICEF will continue to evolve and respond to the challenges children face in a complex yet wondrous world.
