|UN Calendar of Observances: Making a Difference||iTunes|
United Nations observances promote awareness of and action on important political, social, cultural, humanitarian or human rights issues. The UN Calendar iPhone app provides details of UN observances, as well as ways to get involved in related events and links to obtain further information.
It illustrates how the United Nations makes a difference in peace and security, economic development, social development, human rights, the environment, international law, humanitarian affairs and global health. The UN Calendar features interactive components about UN achievements, links to related videos and photos and options for sharing information via social networking sites. It can store UN observances in the native iPhone calendar, with the option of a reminder alert. The app can also be used independently, or easily and safely disengaged from the native iPhone calendar. You can start using it already in December 2012!
Available through iTunes.
