The International Day of Friendship was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 2011, with the notion that friendship between countries, cultures and individuals can result in peace efforts and aid in building bridges between communities.
This day follows the proposal made by UNESCO, solidifying the Culture of Peace as a set of attitudes, behaviours and values that oppose violence and prevents conflicts by solving problems from the root issue.
Our world faces constant battles of poverty, violence, and human rights abuse. These devastating factors are issues that cause a division between our countries and cultures. The #InternationalDayOfFriendship works towards promoting and defending solidarity between people through the simplest form of love and affection: friendship.
