International Friendship Day

  • International Friendship Day is celebrated annually on July 30 and it was first proposed way back in the year 1958 by World Friendship Crusade, an international civil organisation that campaigns to foster a culture of peace through friendship. It was in the year 2011 that the day was formally adopted as International Day of Friendship by the General Assembly of United Nations.
  • Even before the proposal of World Friendship Crusade, the first-ever friendship day was perhaps conceptualised by Greeting Card National Association that tried to sell the idea of a Friendship Day in 1920s to increase sale of their greeting cards but back then people were not ready to buy this idea thinking it was a gimmick. In 1930, Joyce Hall, the founder of Hallmark Cards, Inc, created the first widely known National Friendship Day on August 2 but this too fizzled out with time.

International Tiger Day

Therefore, this day aims to encourage all to take appropriate action to save the wild cats.
  • International Tiger Day was introduced in 2010 after it was discovered that 97 percent of tigers had disappeared in the past century, with only about 3,000 remaining. Since tigers were on the verge of extinction, a number of countries signed an agreement at the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit in Russia to prevent the situation from worsening.

  • The inaugural International Hepatitis C Awareness day, coordinated by various European and Middle Eastern Patient Groups and Baby Muriel, took place on October 1, 2004. However, many patient groups continued to mark 'hepatitis day' on disparate dates. For this reason in 2008, the World Hepatitis Alliance in collaboration with patient groups declared May 19 the first global World Hepatitis Day.
  • Following the adoption of a resolution during the 63rd World Health Assembly in May 2010, World Hepatitis Day was given global endorsement as the primary focus for national and international awareness-raising efforts and the date was changed to July 28 (in honour of Nobel Laureate Baruch Samuel Blumberg, discoverer of the hepatitis B virus, who celebrates his birthday on that date).
  • Each year World Hepatitis Day has a theme and the theme for 2022 was 'Bringing Hepatitis care closer to you'.

World Nature Conservation Day

  • World Nature Conservation Day is observed annually on 28 July to create awareness about the need to preserve the environment and its natural resources. As the world faces challenges like climate change, deforestation, urbanisation and loss of flora and fauna, it is important to protect nature and keep our natural environment safe.
