United Nations Days
The 3HO NGO was formed in 1969 in service to the United Nations’ work for peace in the world. 3HO supports the goals and work of the United Nations through sharing the technology of living a healthy, happy, and whole lifestyle.
United Nations Observances
The existence of international days predates the establishment of the United Nations, but the UN has embraced them as a powerful advocacy tool. The United Nations observes designated days, weeks, years, and decades, each with a theme, or topic. By creating special observances, the United Nations promotes international awareness and action on these issues.
Each international day offers the opportunity to organize activities related to the theme of the day. Organizations and offices of the United Nations system, and most importantly, governments, civil society, the public and private sectors, schools, universities, and, more generally, citizens, make an international day a springboard for awareness-raising actions. The majority of observances have been established by resolutions of the United Nations General Assembly, although some have been designated by UN specialized agencies. The United Nations also observes anniversaries of key events in its history.
As a United Nations non-governmental organization, 3HO supports International Women’s Day, International Day of Happiness, International Mother Earth Day, International Yoga Day, International Day of Peace, and the Stop Violence Against Women campaign. We offer worldwide meditations and kriyas, celebrations, and yogic resources in support of these events.
