International Day of Families 2024: How to create strong bonds with your family

Our families have a profound influence on who we become; they are both a source of strength and weakness for us and are an integral part of who we are. In order to recognize and commemorate the immense influence that a person’s family has had on their identity, May 15th is always the International Day of Families. “The Day was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in 1993…and reflects the importance the international community attaches to families,” according to Wikipedia.

This year is the International Day of Families’ 30th anniversary. ‘Families and Climate Change’ is the theme for the 2024 International Day of Families. Its “goal is to increase public awareness of the ways in which families are impacted by climate change and the part that families can play in addressing it. We can promote climate action with education, information access, training, and community involvement through family and community activities,” a statement on the official UN website states.

Here are some suggestions to help you enjoy this day: build lasting relationships and treasured experiences with your family.
