International Human Solidarity Day is observed on 20 December annually. The observance highlights the importance of unity in diversity, and reminds people to work together in fighting against poverty, hunger, and disease.
The theme of International Human Solidarity does not change every year in the United States. The basic purpose of International Human Solidarity Day is to promote the culture of cooperation, equality and social justice.
Solidarity is capable of reducing inequality and social injustice in the world. It leads to the sustainable development of people. Solidarity can be cultivated through education.
On December 22, 2005, The General Assembly by revolution 60/209 recognized solidarity as one of the fundamental and universal values of the twenty-first century.
The concept of solidarity was promoted through the establishment of the World Solidarity Fund to eradicate poverty and the proclamation of International Human Solidarity Day.
