2020 United World Week Review
United World Week 2020 in numbers.
It’s practically impossible to convey the variety, quality, love, surprizing beauty and imagination brought by all those who participated in this year’s United World Week. So we’ve attempted to summarize and share the impact of “In Time for Peace” through numbers as presented in this video.

Over 400 cities in 100 different countries were involved, covering all continents. This United World Week 2020 managed to symbollically unite the world through the motto “In Time For Peace”.
