“The family is the smallest – and the most important – institution in the world.”
The International Day of Families was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1993, when it adopted resolution number 47/234 and approved May 15th as a holiday for families.
The International Day of Families is meant to draw attention to the problems faced by the family and to remind us that the family is the basic social unit on which much depends, and which requires attention. We are part of a family, and we must keep families in mind. So should authorities and politicians, whose actions have an effect on them.
Social Campaign for Employers and Employees
The most important areas of life in which we fulfil our obligations and realise are dreams are family life and professional life. For many years, it was believed that the two were separate worlds, often at odds with each other. However, more and more people and companies have realised the need to integrate these two areas. As the saying goes, “We have only one life in which we play many roles.”
For years, the Humanities Foundation has worked to raise awareness of sustainable human development and the integration of professional and personal life. One of the Foundation’s projects is the Two Hours for the Family social campaign.
The sixth edition of the campaign reached over 14.5 million people. The impact of the campaign was felt as far away as Germany, Slovakia, and even Kazakhstan. This year, we’ve invited everyone to the table. The kitchen – the heart of the home – is associated with warmth, aroma, a friendly atmosphere, and often life itself. Both domestic and social life are centred on the kitchen. We encouraged you to cook and eat together. To fill your time with tastes, aromas, and colours. To sharing recipes, culinary secrets, childhood memories, and longing for tastes of the past. Many family stories are associated with the table, with food, with taste. Culinary traditions are also part of our cultural identity.
Here’s a list of ideas we’ve selected for spending time together this year:
