Language Days at the United Nations were introduced to celebrate
multilingualism and cultural diversity and promote the equal use of the six
official languages ​​across the Organization. These
days are also an opportunity to sensitize the United Nations community to the
history, culture and use of each of these languages.  Founded in 2016, the
UNCMS is dedicated to promoting the UN goals at large - through the universal
language of music.
