Happy International Day of Friendship
Published on: 30.07.2020
July 30th marks the International Day of Friendship. This special day was proclaimed by the United Nations General Agency in 2011 and it aims at inspiring peace efforts and building bridges between different communities through the friendship between people from different cultures and backgrounds.
This idea takes more importance as the world is facing challenging times due to social, economic, and health crises that undermine peace among people.
The resolution on the International Day of Friendship gives special importance to the role of young people as change-makers, community activists, and future leaders.
The International Day of Friendship is an initiative that follows on the proposal made by UNESCO defining the Culture of Peace as a set of values, attitudes, and behaviors that reject violence and endeavor to prevent conflicts by addressing their root causes to solve problems.
