Each year, the U.N. Headquarters in New York celebrates the International Day of Families (May 15th) with a special programme. The 2018 celebration of the International day of Families, titled ‘Families and Inclusive Societies’, focused on our Sustainable Development Goal #16 relating to the promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development.

IFFD collaborates each year supporting this event. Two representatives from IFFD took part in this year’s event: Ignacio Socías, IFFD’s Director of Communication and International Relations and José Alejandro Vázquez, IFFD’s Representative to the UN.
