21 Jun 2019 – Interactive Panel Discussion. 2019 Theme: Yoga for Climate Action. The fifth annual International Day of Yoga was celebrated at the United Nations on Thursday, 20 June 2019, with “Yoga with Gurus,” followed by a panel discussion on 21 June.
International days are occasions to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity. The existence of international days predates the establishment of the United Nations, but the UN has embraced them as a powerful advocacy tool. Two Vaishnavas on the panel & the facilitator quoting from the Bhagavad Gita at the UN!!
