2020 is the year of the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. In honor of this, the UN announced the launch of the UN75 initiative, the largest, broadest discussion on the role of international cooperation in building a better future for all. As part of this initiative, throughout the year 2020, the United Nations is conducting dialogues around the world. In the course of analyzing the real state of affairs in the world, for the first time, thanks to four innovative data collection channels, a package of solutions for the main global problems will be developed through crowdsourcing. Russia supports this discussion, as well as the celebration of the 75th anniversary, having approved a system of events and projects. Among them is a photochronicle project of the national network of the UN GC Network Russia in partnership with TASS and the UN Information Center in Moscow. The project manager is M. Gusman, First Deputy General Director of TASS.
