Global Day of Parents 2021

Since the 1980s, the important role of the family has increasingly come to the attention of the international community. The General Assembly adopted several resolutions and proclaimed the International Year of the Family and the International Day of Families.

Emphasizing the critical role of parents in the rearing of children, the Global Day of Parents recognizes that the family has the primary responsibility for the nurturing and protection of children. For the full and harmonious development of their personality, children should grow up in a family environment and an atmosphere of happiness, love and understanding.

Designated by the General Assembly in 2012, Global Day of Parents provides an opportunity to appreciate all parents for their “selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship.”


Omladinska organizacija Svitac (Firefly Bosnia) held an interesting workshop on this topic with participants aged 4-7. We talked about how much we love and respect our parents, made colourful cards for them and recorded a short video with messages from our participants.The workshop was held at the premises of the Youth centre.
