International Civil Aviation Day

On December 7 of every fifth year, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) holds a special celebration of its anniversary. On this day, the ICAO Council creates a theme for each fifth anniversary. The theme they chose in 2014 for 2015 -2018 is “Working Together to Ensure No Country is Left Behind,” which means to keep all countries up-to-date on the current standards of safety, security and emissions.

By celebrating International Civil Aviation Day, our children can begin to see the positive influence that ICAO has on the economic and social development of the participating countries. Talk with your child and brainstorm ideas about how your family, friends and community can get involved to help countries in need:

  • Think about starting an aviation oriented pen pal project and include your local school or library to help facilitate it;
  • Consider holding a charity drive to collect items needed in less fortunate countries, and explain to your child how aviation will deliver the items you collect.

What are some ways that you can convey the message of “Working Together to Ensure No Country Is Left Behind” to your children?
