International Day of Conscience is on 5th April

The International Day of Conscience is celebrated on April 5th. The goal of the day is to foster a culture of tolerance, compassion, and conscience. This day serves as a reminder to people to think about themselves, obey their hearts, and do the right thing.  
The idea of a culture of peace was first proposed at the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization`s International Peace Conference in July 1989. (UNESCO). 
The aim of this day is to foster a peaceful society by encouraging people to engage in cultural, social, comprehensive education, and civic activities. 
Everyone has something to learn in this harmony, as well as something to contribute and share. The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) has declared April 5 as International Day of Conscience in order to promote peaceful and friendly relations based on respect for human rights and basic freedoms of race, gender, language, and religion.

Following that, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed April 5 to be International Day of Conscience. On April 5, 2020, this date was first observed.
