April 18 was identified as the World Heritage Day in the year 1982 by International Council for Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS). It was suggested that a special day should be marked and celebrated all through the world in the name of “International Day for Monuments and Sites”. In 1983, UNESCO’s General Conference also approved the idea and since then, April 18 is marked as the World Heritage Day. A World Heritage Site is classified as a natural or man-made area or a structure that is of international importance and space which requires special protection. These sites are of utmost importance because of the historical, cultural and geographical threads that are associated with them. The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) believe that the sites are extremely valuable for humanity and should be taken care of, in the best ways possible. There are 1,052 Heritage Sites in the world, of which 814 are cultural, 203 are natural and 35 are mixed. This special day offers an opportunity to raise the public awareness about the diversity of cultural heritage and the efforts that are required to protect and conserve it, as well as draw attention to its vulnerability. Each year, there’s a different theme that’s selected to mark this day - this year it’s sustainable tourism. It’s been chosen to align with the UN’s International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development.
Supported by the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH), hemophilia awareness day was first established in 1989. The date of 17th April was chosen to honor Frank Schnabel the founder of WFH, whose birthday falls on the same date. Hemophilia is a condition in which bleeding is prolonged. Hemophilia is a condition present from birth and is normally inherited; you can't 'catch' hemophilia or pass it onto others. In some rare instances, hemophilia may develop later in life (typically affecting people in the 50+ age group). As with many other awareness campaigns, a simple but effective slogan is used to help raise awareness for the issues concerned. The slogan for World Hemophilia Day is 'Close the Gap', which reflects the difference in treatments available to people living in different parts of the world. By working together, it is hoped that we can close the gap of hemophilia care around the world. 'Close The Gap', is an apt phrase; when blood clots, a 'gap' is closed which stops bleeding. The World Federation of Hemophilia provide resources for those wishing to get involved in this campaign. Resources include posters, information on why people should participate in World Hemophilia Day, a logo, press release templates and suggested activities. Now a day people can communicate through social medias more easily .
