Migration draws increasing attention in the world nowadays. The United Nations is actively playing a catalyst role in this area, with the aim of creating more dialogues and interactions within countries and regions, as well as propelling experience exchange and collaboration opportunities. The International Migrants Day is an occasion to educate the general public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity.
The observance of International Migrants Day this year focuses on the stories of social cohesion, which are as varied and unique as each of the 272 million migrants living new lives and building new communities in every corner of the globe.
We learn together, create together, work together, sing, dance and play together. We live together. That is the meaning of International Migrants Day and its message.
The International Organization for Migration salutes migrants and the communities, which they join and remake through mutual effort.
We salute and support them. We pledge to make the future we believe is arriving for all of us. #WeTogether.
