Invite you to: #CelebrateMen @ 1pm on 19th November #InternationalMensDay
International Men’s Day is celebrated annually on 19th November. It is an opportunity for everyone to reflect on and celebrate the men in their lives and to consider the many positive contributions that men make to family, community, culture and society.
This year, because of lockdown, the Men’s Development Network is inviting everyone to #CelebrateMen on #InternationalMensDay through a campaign based on people posting short videos on their social media channels and tagging and asking their friends to do the same.

International Men’s Day highlights the key issues impacting on men’s lives today. For over 23 years MDN has addressed these issues in its programmes and campaigns. This year, due to the lockdown, we are inviting everyone to help us see through the stereotypes and address these issues by sharing online their appreciation of men who have inspired or helped them.
We hope that by sharing these life enhancing experiences, we can encourage new conversations that will support our mission:
“Better Lives for Men, Better Lives for All”.
*Donations from this campaign will fund programmes helping men experiencing isolation, enabling them to make connections & get support.
