Lions Day / United Nations

Lions Day / United Nations

Nearly 850 Lions and Leos from 36 countries attended the 39th annual Lions Day with the United Nations held on Saturday, March 4, 2017. Attendees convened in the prestigious General Assembly Hall at the UN Headquarters in New York City, New York, USA. 

With a theme of health and inclusion, the program highlighted our partnership with Special Olympics and showed how unified sports can help to achieve several of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. In addition, a memorandum of understanding was jointly signed by LCI and UN Women to align both organizations around gender equality issues. This signing ceremony showed how UN Women and Lions have continued to makes strides with gender equality and peace since last year’s event.
