In 2001, the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) selected June 1 as World Milk Day, which celebrates the important contributions of the dairy sector to sustainability, economic development, livelihoods and nutrition. The Global Dairy Platform will be coordinating global celebrations on June 1, 2017. We hope to count on all of you to join in by organizing your own World Milk Day event.
We want World Milk Day to be known around the world and for people to see the creativity of World Milk Day organizers by having access to live and recorded images of all the events taking place around the world. World Milk Day will build in particular on social media to make sure that all events are shared widely and sometimes live or with little delay. Coordinating with the Global Dairy Platform is essential to make sure that we can continue the momentum throughout 2017 - and beyond!
