The Friendship Day or International Day of Friendship was proclaimed in 2011, during the 65th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations, with the idea that the friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals are able to stimulate initiatives peace and build bridges between communities.
Celebrations take place on the first Sunday of August. The party becomes more and more popular with the spread of the Internet, particularly in India, Bangladesh and Malaysia. This day is celebrated in several countries of South America.
The decision was taken by a resolution approved by more than 50 countries, including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, resolution that places special emphasis on the importance of involving young people, who will be the leaders of tomorrow, in activities designed to embrace different cultures in order to promote mutual understanding and respect for diversity, recognizing the relevance and importance of friendship as a feeling noble and precious in the lives of human beings all over the world .
The day, however, dates much further and it seems to start from a marketing action launched by entrepreneur American Joyce Hall , founder of Hallmark Cards, which proposed to celebrate the day of friendship the August 2, by sending special cards. Within a decade the fashion launched by Hall lost force, however, was kept alive and even revitalized in Asia where several countries adopted the celebration of 2 August as Friendship Day.
The idea of an International Day of Friendship was subsequently proposed July 20, 1958 by Dr. Ramón Artemio Bracho during a dinner with friends in Puerto Penasco, Paraguay. From that meeting was born the World Friendship Crusade, a foundation that promotes friendship and brotherhood among all human beings, without distinction as to race, color or religion . Since then, July 30 has been faithfully celebrated as Friendship Day in Paraguay, before being adopted by several other countries. It was the World Friendship Crusade to lobby the United Nations for recognition of 30 July as International Day of Friendship result obtained only in 2011.
In 1997, however, is the proposal made by UNESCO and adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations, which defines the culture of peace as a set of values, attitudes and behaviors that reject violence and endeavor to prevent conflicts by tackling the causes to the root, in order to solve the problems.
Proclaiming then, in 1998, the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Nonviolence for the Children of the World (2001-2010), the General Assembly recognized that tremendous damage and suffering are caused to children through various forms of violence and pointed out that the promotion of a culture of peace and nonviolence should be instilled in children through the education.
The recognition of the International Day of Friendship and then sinks its roots in the recognition of the relevance and the importance of friendship as a feeling noble and precious in the lives of human beings all over the world. A celebration loudly requested by multiple parties and Today that finally became a reality stable. To celebrate then the fourth edition of the International Day of Friendship United Nations urged governments, international organizations and civil society to organize all events, activities and initiatives to cooperate with the international community to the promotion of dialogue between civilizations, the ideals of solidarity, mutual understanding and reconciliation.
