UN International Day of Human Fraternity

The UN General Assembly has declared 4 February as the International Day of Human Fraternity, and it will be celebrated on the same date each year. 

This resolution by the UN builds on the meeting between Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmad al-Tayyib, on 4 February 2019 in Abu Dhabi, which resulted in the signing of the document entitled, “Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together”. It particularly underlines the significance of such initiatives between world leaders.
