What does it mean and why is it celebrated?

International days are occasions to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity. The existence of international days predates the establishment of the United Nations, but the UN has embraced them as a powerful advocacy tool.

In a world where violence forces thousands of families to flee for their lives each day, the time is now to show that the global public stands with refugees.
