The International Day of Friendship is observed to promote friendship, peace, and understanding between people from different cultures and countries. It was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 2011 and has been celebrated annually ever since. The UN recognizes that friendship between individuals, communities, and countries can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between civilizations.
In New Zealand, the International Day of Friendship is an opportunity to celebrate the country's cultural diversity and multiculturalism. The country has a long history of welcoming immigrants from all over the world, and this has led to a vibrant and diverse society. The day is usually marked by community events, cultural performances, and social gatherings that bring people from different backgrounds together.
The day is also significant for its role in raising awareness about the importance of friendships in promoting peace and social cohesion. Research has shown that friendships can break down barriers and prejudices between people, and that social connectedness can have positive effects on mental and physical health. By celebrating the International Day of Friendship, communities in New Zealand can promote harmony, mutual respect, and understanding among all people. The International Day of Friendship is observed annually on July 30th.
