THE POSTAL HISTORY OF ICAO

 

The International Days Related to Civil Aviation

 

The United Nations General Assembly designates many International Days to mark important aspects of human life and history. Each international day offers many actors the opportunity to organize activities related to the theme of the day. Organizations and offices of the United Nations system, and most importantly, governments, civil society, the public and private sectors, schools, universities and, more generally, citizens, make an international day a springboard for awareness-raising actions. UN Specialized Agencies, including UNESCO, can also proclaim World Days.
