Interested persons and groups are invited to observe International Men’s Day (IMD) on 19 November 2023. The theme for 2023 is “Zero Male Suicide”.
Inaugurated on 19th November 1999, International Men’s Day has facilitated a global dialogue on creating a nurturing and empowering world for men and boys especially the less fortunate and disadvantaged. It has also created and supported initiatives which improve the manner in which the world addresses and resolves their unique mental and physical health issues and improves their access to essential tools needed to access real life-options and empower and strengthen their communities.
On 19th November 2023, we want to encourage institutions, organisations, and individuals to identify the causes of male suicide and try to find solutions to create a protective environment for men in all nations. In this regard, International Men’s Day will be observed under the theme: Zero Male Suicide
This engagement also means ensuring there is intervention, counselling and mediation where necessary. A safe environment is essential for nurturing, growth and development of men who are stable, healthy and caring.
International Men’s Day celebrates and honours the contributions and sacrifices of men – “everyday men”. This year IMD will be observed in 93 nations, and IMD resonates with everyone from different ethnicities, religions, classes and geographical locations. Observance of International Men’s Day places a focus on uniting humanity by providing individuals, organizations, and institutions throughout our global village with an opportunity to help work towards our shared objectives which we apply equally to men and boys irrespective of their age, ability, social background, ethnicity, sexuality, gender identity, religious belief, and relationship status.
Those six objectives are:
- To promote positive male role models; not just movie stars and sportsmen but everyday, working-class men who are living decent, honest lives
- To celebrate men’s positive contributions to society, community, family, marriage, child care, and to the environment
- To focus on men’s health and well-being; social, emotional, physical, and spiritual
- To highlight discrimination against males in areas of social services, social attitudes, expectations, and law
- To improve gender relations and promote gender equality
- To create a safer, better world, where all people can grow and reach their full potential.
