Day of Families

15th May, 2021

This year’s International Day of Families will focus on the role of families and family-oriented policies in promoting education and overall well-being of their members. In particular, this day raises awareness of the role of families in promoting early childhood education and lifelong learning opportunities for children and youth.

The Day also aims to discuss the importance of "knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of culturaldiversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development" (SDG4, target 4.7).
