International Day of Families 2024

The International Day of Families is observed annually to celebrate the importance of families and their role in society.

The UN adopted a resolution in 1994, the resolution was made to make people more aware about the importance of family, to encourage unity, show the problems family can face and recognize the work done to support families all around the world.

In 2024, as we mark the 30th anniversary of International Day of Family, let us know about the day, its origin, significance, the theme for 2024 and many more.

Date
The International Day of Families is observed on 15th of May every year and in 2024 it occurs on Wednesday. The UN will celebrate the 30th anniversary.

Theme
The theme for 2024 is ‘Families and Climate Change’.
The aim is to help families understand how climate change affects them and to encourage them to do something about it. Families and communities working together are really important in fighting climate change. They can teach each other, share information, and work together. It’s really important to help families become strong and able to fight climate change. If families learn about how to live sustainably and understand climate change, we can move towards an economy where we reuse things more.

Origin
The United Nations started paying more attention to family issues in the 1980s. Then, in 1993, they decided that May 15th would be celebrated as The International Day of Families every year.

Since then, every May 15th is a chance for governments, groups, and communities to talk about how important families are and how we can help them with their problems. This year is the 30th anniversary of the International Day of Families.

Significance
The International Day of Families is important for many reasons. It helps people understand how climate change affects families and encourages them to do things that help the environment. It also reminds us how important it is for families to stick together and be close with their communities. This day shows that families come in all different shapes and sizes, and it’s important to accept and include everyone.

It’s a special day to think about the good things happening for families, but also to see where we need to do more to make sure families everywhere are doing well.
