International Anti-Corruption Day 2019

9 December @ 12:00 am 12:00 pm

Dear all,

The International Anti-Corruption Day on 9 December 2019 is fast approaching! To mark the occasion, we are calling on civil society organisations CSOs, the private sector, governments, the media and citizens around the world to stand #UnitedAgainstCorruption. The 2019 campaign, developed jointly by UNODC and UNDP, will continue to leverage the multi-year “United Against Corruption” theme. This year, young people are in the spotlight: their role in strengthening accountability and developing innovative solutions to prevent and curb corruption is crucial. Empowering #YouthForJustice is key for ensuring sustainable solutions to combatting corruption.

So what can you do?
Get inspired by checking out the 
Call to Action Matrix to find out the different ways that people can say “NO” to corruption. Check the International Anti-Corruption Day website where the 2019 campaign material such as logos, posters, and leaflets are available in multiple languages for maximum outreach. With these, you can:

1. Network and mobilise people to take action: Organise public meetings and rallies, make speeches, distribute the campaign materials, set up petitions and run meetings, workshops or events;
2. Raise your voice and advocate: Write letters, newspaper articles, adverts and newsletters, produce radio programmes, and participate in televised interviews;
3. Speak out on social media: Adopt the
 logo as your profile picture, and make visible the campaign materials in order to raise awareness around the International Anti-Corruption Day by using the hashtags #UnitedAgainstCorruption and #YouthForJustice to stress the importance of empowering and mobilizing youth to fight for a corrupt-free world.
