10 December 2023 marks the 75th anniversary of one of the world's most groundbreaking global pledges: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). This landmark document enshrines the inalienable rights that everyone is entitled to as a human being - regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
The Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 and sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected.
World Animal Day exists to raise the status of animals and improve welfare standards around the globe.
It’s a day of celebration for animal lovers everywhere.
On October 4, it’s our chance to mobilise into a global force, to take action against animal cruelty, neglect and unfair treatment and make the world a better place for all animals.
September 2023 marks the 12th anniversary of World Alzheimer’s Month, our international campaign to raise awareness and challenge stigma. In 2022, over 111 countries took part in advocacy, fundraising and awareness raising events for World Alzheimer’s Month, with many working to raise general awareness and call for further support for those most affected in their communities. The month of activities shows a truly global, regional, national and local level response to promote dementia awareness and what we can do to help support those living with the disease, now and in the future.
