We all need our friends, and what better way to acknowledge and celebrate them than with the United Nation’s International Day of Friendship, held each year on 30 July.

Friendship Blog 1

The International Day of Friendship is an initiative that follows on UNESCO’s Declaration and Programme of Action on a Culture of Peaceproposal taken up by the UN General Assembly in 1997. The declaration defined the Culture of Peace as a set of values, attitudes and behaviours that reject violence and endeavour to prevent conflicts by addressing their root causes with a view to solving problems. 

In its resolution of 1998, proclaiming the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World (2001–2010), the General Assembly recognised that enormous harm and suffering are caused to children through different forms of violence.

The Declaration and Programme of Action on a Culture of Peace, adopted in 1999, set eight areas of action for nations, organisations and individuals to undertake for a culture of peace to prevail: 

  1. foster a culture of peace through education 

  2. promote sustainable economic and social development 

  3. promote respect for all human rights

  4. ensure equality between women and men

  5. foster democratic participation

  6. advance understanding, tolerance and solidarity

  7. support participatory communication and the free flow of information and knowledge

  8. promote international peace and security 

The International Day of Friendship is also based on the recognition of the relevance and importance of friendship as a noble and valuable sentiment in the lives of human beings around the world. 

The Day is also intended to support the goals and objectives of the Declaration and Programme of Action on a Culture of Peace and the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World (2001-2010). 

From all of us here at Right at Home.  

In good friendship.
