As we approach 2013, we wanted to share with you a new App launched by UNDPI earlier this month which we hope you will find useful. This electronic version of the print “United Nations Making a Difference 2013” educational calendar is a handy tool that not only uses international days to showcase what the UN does through photos, videos and web links, but also features what the UN does in peace and security, economic development, social development, human rights, environment, international law, humanitarian affairs, health etc.
The “2013 UN Calendar of Observances: Making a Difference” is now available as an App for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod. To download the calendar app, please click the link above or go directly to the App store on your iPhone, iPad or iPod and search for the UN Calendar of Observances.
Users can choose to integrate the UN observances into the native iOS Calendar, with the option of reminder alerts.
The App was created by a team of Online Un Volunteers (UNV) working with three DPI interns and saw over 2,000 downloads in its first week.
