November 26th is World Olive Tree Day

World Olive Tree Day, celebrated annually on November 26, was officially established during the 40th session of the UNESCO General Conference in 2019. This day honors the olive tree, a symbol of peace, wisdom, and harmony since ancient times. The olive branch, in particular, holds a significant place in human consciousness, transcending geographical boundaries and resonating with people and communities worldwide.

The day is not only a celebration of the olive tree itself but also an opportunity to reflect on its cultural and symbolic importance. UNESCO encourages global participation in this celebration through a variety of activities. These include engaging debates, informative conferences, educational workshops, cultural events, and exhibitions. World Olive Tree Day serves as a platform to share knowledge, experiences, and the rich heritage associated with the olive tree, fostering a sense of unity and appreciation for this remarkable symbol of peace and wisdom.
