The International Day of Remembrance and Tribute to Victims of Terrorism, celebrated on August 21st each year, was proclaimed by the United Nations to pay tribute to the countless lives lost and the suffering inflicted by terrorist acts worldwide. This day, supported by the international community, aims to express collective solidarity towards all individuals affected by terrorism, whether directly or indirectly.

By celebrating this day, the UN emphasizes the importance of combating and preventing terrorism in all its forms. By highlighting the call for peace, tolerance, and respect for human rights for all, this initiative seeks to create a safer world and build a future where terrorist atrocities are eradicated for good. Through this joint effort, the UN and its member states unite to work towards a planet free from the ravages of acts of extreme violence, and therefore, a more peaceful future.
