International Men's Day 2020
International Men’s Day (IMD) is an annual international event celebrated in over 80 countries including the UK on the 19th of November.
International Men's Day aims to highlight and recognise important issues such as men's health, male suicide rates and the underperformance of boys in education.
The three core themes for International Men’s Day in the UK are:
- Making a positive difference to the wellbeing and lives of men and boys
- Raising awareness and/or funds for charities supporting men and boys’ wellbeing
- Promoting a positive conversation about men, manhood and masculinity
International Men's Day co-incides with the Movember Campaign, which is an annual event, run by the Movember Foundation, involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide.
