International Family Day, also known as International Day of Families, is observed annually on May 15. The event is celebrated to cherish the importance of families, societies, cultures and people for a better world.
In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly announced to observe International Day of Families on May 15. The idea behind the observance was to protect the significance of family, culture and society from the negative influence of economic changes. This day provides an opportunity to promote awareness of issues relating to families and to increase the knowledge of the social, economic and demographic processes affecting families.
Urbanization is one of the most important mega trends shaping our world and the life and wellbeing of families worldwide.
The theme for 2022 celebration of International Day of Families is “Families and Urbanization”. It aims to raise awareness on the importance of sustainable, family-friendly urban policies.
Here’s a collection of wishes, quotes, messages and greetings to share among family members and close ones:
