International Human Solidarity Day
20 December, 2021
Solidarity, as identified in the Millennium Declaration, is one of the fundamental values of international relations — those, who suffer or benefit least deserve help from those who benefit most. In the context of globalization and the challenge of growing inequality, strengthening of international solidarity is indispensable.The Sustainable Development Agenda is centred on people and our planet, underpinned by human rights and supported by a global partnership built on cooperation and solidarity. International Human Solidarity Day is thus to celebrate the unity of our world in diversity, to respect commitments to international agreements, and to strengthen solidarity in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. The World Solidarity (trust) Fund gives funds to people/programmes to eradicate poverty and promote human and social development in developing countries, in particular among the poorest segments of their populations.
