As 2024 marks the 30th anniversary of the International Year of the Family (IYF+30), civil society organizations worldwide are uniting to support the United Nations and Member States in honoring this milestone.
The organizations involved have pledged to collaborate with the United Nations system, particularly with the Division for Inclusive Social Development of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DISD).
The focus for IYF+30 centers on key trends identified by the United Nations Secretariat: new technologies, climate change, urbanization, international migration, and demographic changes with their profound impacts on family dynamics.
By re-establishing the International Year of Family on its 30th anniversary, the group seeks to support families as critical agents in recovery, governance, cohesion, protection, education, care, and development. It recognizes the family's crucial role in societal development and the importance of creating an empowering family environment.
One highlight is the need to acknowledge and support unpaid care and domestic work, advocating for policies promoting shared household responsibilities. It calls for greater attention to the well-being and mental health of caregivers and care recipients, with a particular focus on the social impact of the pandemic on families.
Furthermore, the organizations emphasize that children should grow up in nurturing family environments characterized by happiness, love, and understanding. They acknowledge the pivotal role of family-oriented networks and organizations in mainstreaming local, national, and international family policies.
