International Days' Sentiment


August 9th;
International Day of the World's Indigenous People
English    Persian

The International Day of the World’s Indigenous People (9 August) was first pronounced by the General Assembly in December 1994, to be celebrated every year during the first International Decade of the World's Indigenous People (1995 – 2004).

In 2004, the Assembly proclaimed a Second International Decade, from 2005 – 2015, with the theme of “A Decade for Action and Dignity.”
The focus of this year’s International Day will be Celebrating Indigenous Film Making, which ties in with the theme of the 2010 session of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, 'development with culture and identity.'

At UNHQ on 9 August, there will be a screening of several short films by indigenous film makers, followed by a discussion with some of the film makers. UN Information Centres and other UN offices worldwide will screen short films on the occasion of the Day. The list of films can be found on the Events page.

The theme of this year’s Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples is indigenous filmmakers, who give us windows into their communities, cultures and history. Their work connects us to belief systems and philosophies; it captures both the daily life and the spirit of indigenous communities. As we celebrate these contributions, I call on Governments and civil society to fulfill their commitment to advancing the status of indigenous peoples everywhere.

What do people do?

People from different nations are encouraged to participate in observing the day to spread the UN’s message on indigenous peoples. Activities may include educational forums and classroom activities to gain an appreciation and a better understanding of indigenous peoples. Events may include messages from the UN secretary general and other key leaders, performances by indigenous artists, and panel discussions on reconciliation.

There are Plenty of companies that are working to simplify the life of people and enhance the invironmet for the better. Here we have presented some of them, however you can get further information checking out their official websites.

Be the Change You Wanna See in the World.   (Gandhi)
