What is the International Day of Families?

The International Day of Families was established by the United Nations in 1993 as a way to raise awareness of issues faced by families throughout the world and highlight the important role that families hold in communities.

The UN also uses the International Day of Families as a way to recognise that family structures have undergone many changes due to social, economical and demographic factors. The International Day of Families is a day to celebrate all types of families.

On this special day, the UN organises and promotes a variety of activities, workshops, newspaper articles and media content. Schools and educational establishments are also encouraged to get involved and observe the International Day of Families.

When is the International Day of Families 2023?

The International Day of Families is held on 15th May every year. The International Day of Families 2023 will be on Monday 15th May 2023.
