International Days and Observances
nternational Days and Observances are days in the calendar that have been designated to highlight issues and themes of critical global importance to humanity and to the Earth itself. Most of such days are designated by the UN General Assembly, with a UN Agency acting as the Lead Organization, to celebrate the year. International Days and Observances are used to commemorate, promote and mobilize action at the international, national and local levels.
