International Men's Day in
Days to go:
International Men's Day (IMD) is an annual global observance aimed at promoting awareness on men's issues and fostering gender equality. It focuses on men's contributions to society, their well-being, and challenges faced by them in various aspects of life. The main pillars of IMD include promoting positive male role models, addressing issues such as health, mental well-being, and toxic masculinity, and raising awareness of discrimination against men.
The concept of International Men's Day was conceived by Dr. Jerome Teelucksingh in 1999 in Trinidad and Tobago. In the European Union, the observance brings increased attention to men's physical and mental health issues, the role of family life in men's lives, and male susceptibility to risk-taking behaviors that often lead to higher rates of accidents and suicide. Additionally, IMD focuses on addressing disparities in education, employment opportunities, and parental rights, which affect men across the European Union.
To observe International Men's Day in the European Union, various activities and events are organized to promote awareness of the importance of men's health and well-being. These may include conferences, seminars, workshops, and other awareness-raising events. Public institutions, non-governmental organizations, schools, and other stakeholders organize these events to initiate dialogue and encourage meaningful conversations on topics related to men's issues. International Men's Day is typically observed on November 19, providing an opportunity for communities across the European Union to come together and support men in their quest for an equal and healthy life.
