United Nations Public Service Day: History

On 20 December, 2002, the United Nations General Assembly designated 23 June every year to observe as United Nations Public Service Day by passing a resolution 57/277. Various events are organised to highlight the contributions done by public servants. No doubt democracy and successful governance can’t be achieved without public service or public administration.

This day is celebrated by various public service organisations and departments around the world by organising several events to recognise the role of public servants in making developments and improvements in the community. Events or activities that are organised are as follows:

- Feature stalls and provide information about this day.

- With the guest speakers lunches are organised.

- Internally within public service agencies or departments award ceremonies will also be organised.

 - To honour public service special announcements are done etc.

The Agenda of 2030 for Sustainable Development Goals focuses on innovative transformation and emphasise the values and principles like 'leaving no one behind', integration, partnerships and universality which is needed to be taken into action. United Nations Public Service Forum highly focuses on SDG 16 and SDG 10. Public institutions should timely deliver the needed services and should follow the principles of transparency, accountability and inclusion. Also, the forum will provide a platform for the Ministers and other senior decision makers to reflect and realise the SDGs. Even participants also get an opportunity to participate in the discussion and can debate on various emerging topics, strategies, innovative approaches, transformations required to deliver SDGs leaving no one behind the 2030 Agenda.

Therefore, we can say that United Nations Public Service Day is celebrated to recognise the work of public servants, encourage people to pursue careers in the public sector and to highlight the work, contribution of public service in the development process and the service given to the community.
