International Day of Families

“Rising social and economic disparities create both pressures and incentives for people to leave their homes in search of better opportunities. … On this International Day of Families, let us renew our commitment to efforts that help and support migrant families around the world.”

UN Secretary-General’s Message for the 2010 International Day of Families

 The International Day of Families has inspired a series of awareness-raising events, including national family days. In many countries, that day provides an opportunity to highlight different areas of interest and importance to families. Activities include workshops and conferences, radio and television programmes, newspaper articles and cultural programmes highlighting relevant themes.

The 2010’s commemoration of the International Day of Families focuses on the impact of migration on families around the world.
