To commemorate this date, the Permanent Forum for Indigenous Issues will hold a virtual event to address precisely the need for the new contract for these populations, the organizers announced.

The event is also an opportunity to demand the inclusion, participation and approval of indigenous peoples for a system with benefits for all.

A social contract is an unwritten agreement that societies reach and sign to cooperate for collective benefits, says the UN official webpage.

In many countries the indigenous communities were never included and such an agreement was reached between dominant populations, while the indigenous people were excluded from political and economic activities.

For such a reason, the UN supports the construction and redesign of a new social contract as an expression of cooperation in pursuit of the interest and common good of humanity and nature, which encourages authentic participation and equal opportunities, respects rights, dignity and freedoms of all.
