International Volunteers Day
The 5th of December is considered International Volunteers Day for the recognition of all Volunteers in the world. A volunteer is a person who takes initiative for social welfare without the expectation of monetary compensation. International Volunteer Day is a chance to thank the many individuals who act with this spirit of giving and to encourage others to follow their example. When an earthquake destroys homes, volunteers prove that human solidarity is shatterproof. When looters aim for cultural property, volunteers safeguard community treasures. When development is lagging, volunteers help enable people to lift themselves out of poverty.

International Civil Aviation Day
It is observed on 7 December. The purpose of International Civil Aviation Day is to help generate and reinforce worldwide awareness of the importance of international civil aviation to the social and economic development of States, and of the unique role of ICAO in helping States to cooperate and realize a truly global rapid transit network at the service of all mankind.
As the UN and world nations have now adopted Agenda 2030 and embarked on a new era of global sustainable development, the importance of aviation as an engine of global connectivity has never been more relevant to the Chicago Convention's objectives to look to international flight as a fundamental enabler of global peace and prosperity.
Every five years, coinciding with ICAO anniversaries (2014/2019/2024/2029/etc.), the ICAO Council establishes a special anniversary theme for International Civil Aviation Day. Between these anniversary years, Council representatives select a single theme for the full four-year intervening period.
The Council has decided that from now until 2023, the theme will be: “Advancing Innovation for Global Aviation Development

International Anti-Corruption Day
The world today faces some of its greatest challenges in many generations – challenges that threaten prosperity and stability for people across the globe. The plague of corruption is intertwined in most of them. Corruption has negative impacts on every aspect of society and is profoundly intertwined with conflict and instability jeopardizing social and economic development and undermining democratic institutions and the rule of law. Corruption not only follows conflict but is also frequently one of its root causes. It fuels conflict and inhibits peace processes by undermining the rule of law, worsening poverty, facilitating the illicit use of resources, and providing financing for armed conflict. Preventing corruption, promoting transparency, and strengthening institutions are crucial if the targets foreseen in the Sustainable Development Goals are to be met. The 2022 International Anti-Corruption Day (IACD) seeks to highlight the crucial link between anti-corruption and peace, security, and development. At its core is the notion that tackling this crime is the right and responsibility of everyone, and that only through cooperation and the involvement of every person and institution can we overcome the negative impact of this crime. States, government officials, civil servants, law enforcement officers, media representatives, the private sector, civil society, academia, the public, and youth alike all have a role to play in uniting the world against corruption. The 2022 IACD also marks the start of efforts to mark the twentieth anniversary of the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC). Over the next year, culminating with IACD 2023, we will be reflecting on a world made better thanks to the collective push afforded by the Convention and, crucially, what gaps remain to ensure this is a truly strong mechanism for the years ahead.

अंतर्राष्ट्रीय भ्रष्टाचार विरोध दिवस
9 दिसंबर 2003 को संयुक्त राष्ट्र संघ ने अंतर्राष्ट्रीय भ्रष्टाचार दिवस मनाने की घोषणा की। तभी से ये दिन भ्रष्टाचार के विरुद्ध लड़ने के लिए मनाया जाता है। केवल रिश्वत लेना ही भ्रष्टाचार नहीं है वरन् अपनी जान - पहचान से कोई वेद्य या अवेद्य काम करवाना, दुकानदार का कम तौलना, मिलावट करना, टैक्स चोरी करना, जमा खोरी करना, गलत तरीके से परीक्षा पास कराना, अपना चयन करवाना आदि कई बातों का समावेश किया जा सकता है। हिंदी में भ्रष्ट यानी बुरा आचार यानी आचरण, जिसका आचरण नियम विरुद्ध हो वही भ्रष्टाचार की श्रेणी में आता है। इस दिवस पर यह प्रयास किया जाता है कि भ्रष्टाचार के विरुद्ध मुहिम और तेज हो क्योंकि भ्रष्टाचार के कारण प्रगतिशील देश और पिछड़ जाते है। योग्य व्यक्ति को स्थान नहीं मिलता, अमीर अपना काम निकलवा लेते है किंतु गरीब व्यक्ति लाचार हो जाता है।
केवल ईमानदार होने भर से कुछ नहीं होता भ्रष्टाचार के विरुद्ध आवाज़ उठानी पड़ेगी। वैसे तो कई प्रयास होने लगे है जैसे - धन का ऑनलाइन स्थानांतरण, ई - मित्र द्वारा कई प्रमाण -पत्रों का बनाना, एकल खिड़की आदि।

डर के आगे जीत है
तारों भरी रात थी, आकाश में चाँदनी का साम्राज्य था। मैं अपने पालतू कुत्ते को लेकर सड़क पर टहल रही थी। अचानक से मेरा कुत्ता भौंका और मुझे लगा कि कोई मेरा पीछा कर रहा है। उस समय मैं डर के मारे घर चली गई। दूसरे दिन फिर वह आदमी मुझे दिखा तो मैं चुपचाप घर को लौट आयी। संयोग से उसी रात मेरे कुत्ते की मौत हो गयी तो मुझे लगा कि उसी आदमी ने मेरे कुत्ते को मारा होगा।समय चलता रहा, कुछ दिन बाद मुझे पता चला कि मेरे कुत्ते को उस आदमी ने नहीं, एक आवारा कुत्ते ने मारा था। एक दिन जब मैं, बाजार गयी तो वहीं आदमी मुझे उस बाजार में दिखा। कुछ सोचा और मैं निड़र होकर उस आदमी के पास गयी। मैं कुछ कह पाती उसके पहले ही वह बोल पड़ा कि, " मैं तुम्हारा पीछा नहीं कर रहा था, मैं तो किसी का इन्तजार कर रहा था। जब तुम पहली बार मुझे देखकर भाग गयी थी, तब तुम्हारा पर्स गिर गया था। मैं तुम्हारा पर्स लौटाना चाह रहा था पर अफसोस कि जब-जब मैं तुम्हें देखता तो तुम भाग जाती थी।" मैंने उसे धन्यवाद दिया और भारी मन से लौटती हुयी सोच रही थी कि कभी-कभी हम निर्णय लेने में जल्दबाजी कर लेते हैं परंतु मुझे संतोष भी था कि मानवता मरी नहीं है।
