International Day of Democracy
And so do you - because it only works when we all work together.
So, have a conversation, express your opinion, listen, vote, agree to disagree, be critical, learn.
These things build our future.
Every little action works towards something bigger.
And every one of us has a say in how we move forward.
International Day of Democracy is a United Nations initiative that takes place every year on September 15 to raise awareness of democratic values and principles. The theme for 2018 is Democracy under Strain: Solutions for a Changing World. Find out more on the United Nations website.
This year, we want to know why #DemocracyMatters to you. Share a photo or message on social media with #DemocracyMatters telling us why you think democracy is important!
