We are joining with others to launch the first Global Integrity Day, commemorating it on 9 June 2020. This special, annual day is something which we have been calling for since December 2016 to shine the global spotlight on moral health for a more-whole world. It is an impetus to endeavor to live in integrity always and in every area of our lives.
This is a positive day to reflect, teach, and collaborate on ways to integrate integrity in all we do throughout the entire year. It is a day to promote:
cultivating lifestyles of integrity from the individual through the international levels;
working together to address the causes and consequences of corruption in its many forms; and
collaborating for just and equitable societies marked with wellbeing for all persons/peoples and for the planet.
Global Integrity Day is also a solemn day to consider our ways: if we are lying and/or stealing in any way big or small, then stop it. If we need to right a wrong we have done, then do so. Be the people we need--Build the world we need.
We hope in due course that it will be designated both as a new United Nations International Day and as a companion day to the already designated International Anti-Corruption Day celebrated every 9th of December.
