To kick-off this year’s Nelson Mandela International Day (or Mandela Day), I will like to start our debate with a photo quiz: “Can you identify at least two of the three persons in the picture? Where was it taken? What occasion?

Also important, Mandela Day is an annual international day in honour of Madiba Nelson Mandela. Celebrated each 18 July (on Mandela’s birthday), the day was officially declared by the United Nations in November 2009 with the first UN Mandela Day held on 18 July 2010. In November 2009, the United Nations General Assembly formally declared 18 July to be "Nelson Mandela International Day."
Mandela Day is a global call to action that celebrates the idea that each individual has the power to transform the world, the ability to make an impact.
The Mandela Day campaign message is:
- "Nelson Mandela has fought for social justice for 67 years. We’re asking you to start with 67 minutes."
- "We would be honoured if such a day can serve to bring together people around the world to fight poverty and promote peace and reconciliation".
