The Australian Men’s Health Forum has launched a new website to help promote the celebration of International Men’s Day in Australia.
International Men’s Day (IMD) is celebrated on 19th November every year and is marked in around 80 countries worldwide. The day provides individuals and organisations with a great opportunity to take part in a global conversation about manhood, masculinity and men’s issues.
In Australia, people mark International Men’s Day in a variety of ways. As a general rule, the majority of celebrations share one or more of the following objectives:
- Valuing male role models
- Acknowledging the contribution of men and boys
- Improving male health
- Tackling discrimination and disadvantage
- Fostering positive gender relations
- Making the world a safer place for everyone
Now, for the first time, the new International Men’s Day website provides a platform to help promote some of the key events that take place every year in recognition of the day.
The new website, created by the Australian Men’s Health Forum, can be found at www.internationalmensday.info.
