International Friendship Day 2020

International Day of Friendship 2020

On July 30th, 2020 we are celebrating the International Day of Friendship

This is my declaration of friendshipđŸ•ș
🗯 Why should you be friends with someone who lives thousands of miles away?
🗯 Why not?

Friendship

In 1997 Winnie the Pooh was designated as Ambassador of Friendship on the occasion of International Day of Friendship

(Against) Racism

International friendships counter racial and ethnic divisions.
For a less divided, more open world.

International understanding

Communication, encounter and intercultural learning break down prejudices and boundaries between different groups.
This enables a cultural exchange.

Experiences

Get authentic, honest practical knowledge.
International friends are the gateway to reality in their home countries.

Networks

The interconnected relationships among a group of friends who provide social and emotional support for each other are friendship networks.
A real friendship network only exists if people get social and emotional support.

Doors

Friendships are the door between people. Abroad friendships create access to people, because people are crucial for peace.
Peace is more between people than nations.

Speech and Language

Pick up a few snippets of speech; a simple sentence to greet or say thank you.
This can also be helpful if you ask for directions in a foreign city.

Help

International friends and friends of these friends will help you in any situation that occurs in their home country.

Important

Friendships are important.
International friendships reduce intercultural fear of the unknown.

Peace

Let me finish with a quote from the American model Christie Brinkley:

„Share your smile with the world. It’s a symbol of friendship and peace.“

 

Let us promote peace through friendship, partnership and cooperation.

Make a new international friend each day!
