International Friendship Day History
International Friendship Day is a day to appreciate and promote friendships. One goal of this observance is to bridge the gaps between race, color, religion and other factors which keep humans from fostering friendship with one another. According to the UN, one purpose of this observance is to promote the idea that friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities.
International Day of Friendship was proclaimed by the United Nations in 2011 with the intent of building communities and helping move towards world peace. The United Nations encourages governments, groups and organizations to host activities and events that promote dialogue, acceptance and understanding between people of different backgrounds. This day is promoted by the UN as being observed July 30th, but is also observed on the first Sunday of August in many countries.
