Families, both traditional and non-traditional, are the foundation of society. Some of the most formative years of our lives are spent growing up with our families, so they should be celebrated! The International Day of Families provides an opportunity to promote awareness of issues relating to families and to increase knowledge of the social, economic, and demographic processes affecting them. In many countries, this day is an opportunity to highlight different areas of interest and importance of families, people, societies, and cultures around the world.

“We must act decisively to protect our planet from both the coronavirus and the existential threat of climate disruption.” - UN Secretary-General António Guterres
 
Mother Earth is clearly urging a call to action. Nature is suffering. Australian fires, heat records and the worst locust invasion in Kenya. Now we face COVID-19, a worldwide health pandemic link to the health of our ecosystem. A healthy ecosystem helps to protect us from these challenges and diseases. The Earth and its ecosystem are our home. In order to achieve a just balance among the economic, social, and environmental needs of present and future generations, it is necessary to promote harmony with nature and the Earth. Climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of humanity and the life-support systems that make our world habitable.
