World Hello Day

This year marks the 40th anniversary of 'World Hello Day'. It promotes the idea that conflicts are better settled using communication rather than confrontation.

The date was created in 1973, in response to the conflict between Israel and Egypt and it has spread since then to 180 countries.

Communication often starts with a simple greeting, so taking part of this celebration couldn't be easier. All you have to do is say hello and good day greetings to at least 10 people you meet.
