In November 2009 the UN General Assembly declared 18 July "Nelson Mandela International Day". A day to recognise and salute the former South African President’s contribution to the pursuit of peace, freedom, equality and development for all. On this commemorative day, we are reminded of Madiba’s Call to Action. It’s in your hands! As Madiba said, it is truly in our hands “to create a better world for all who live in it.” The United Nation in South Africa together with the Nelson Mandela Foundation will launch a "Mandela SDGs Quotes Book", which matches Mandela’s famous sayings aligned to each of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Book emphasizes the importance of sustainable development in our country and further highlighting that #ItIsInYourHands to work towards attaining the SDGs. It is essentially 'Call to Action". Join us on 18 July 2023, amplify the messages on your respected platform to raise the awareness and to play your part for a sustainable future and no better a day that the UN commemorative Nelson Mandela International Day.
