On 1 March 2019, States Parties and partners gathered to commemorate the 20 years of entry into force of the Convention.

With the Convention’s flag flying high on the Pont du Mont-Blanc and Geneva’s iconic "Jet d’eau" illuminated in blue to commemorate the anniversary, the gathering celebrated 20 years of action against anti-personnel mines and recalled the need to continue support to all victims and reminded the Convention’s community of the work remaining to be carried out to achieve a mine-free world.
