Globally the day will be celebrated in conjunction with the 30th anniversary of the Memory of the World Programme, 27 October – 5 November 2022, under the theme “Enlisting documentary heritage to promote inclusive, just and peaceful societies”. Documentary heritage, as an information resource, lends itself both to the “public access to information” component of Target of 16.10 of SDG 16 and its “fundamental freedoms” component.
