Yoga Day 2019: Climate Action, SDG 13 is theme this year
United Nations has adopted the ‘Climate Action’ as the theme of fifth annual International Day of Yoga to be observed on June 21, 2019. The Climate Action is also Goal 13 in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030 adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015. According to the programme schedule of UNO Headquarters in New York, there will be "Yoga with Gurus” on June 20 followed by a panel discussion on June, 21.
The first International Day for Yoga was observed with unparalleled enthusiasm and voluntary public participation in 192 out of 193 countries. Yoga, the Indian practice of physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing has become an epitome of voluntarism and public participation since it was sponsored by an all-time record of 177 members of the UN General Assembly in 2014.
