There is no official way to celebrate this day. It is however encouraged for you to celebrate through an event or an award ceremony. The purpose is for men to teach boys values, character and the responsibilities which come with becoming a man.

Individuals could approach their community to put together a small local event to celebrate the men around them. It’s also a special time to mention the brave men who protect the community such as policemen and firefighters etc.

If attending an event or hosting an event is not an option, social media can be used to create awareness. Share information about the day on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram using the hashtags, #internationalmensday #celebratemen #menshealth #stopmalesuicide #thankamantoday
