The URI Latin America and the Caribbean Link Program invites you to the Winter Solstice Celebration, Fiesta de las Américas 2023, a festivity that we share with the URI Community since 2021.
The first Peoples of the Planet had ways of relating to the Environment, with the Sun, and the Earth. These forms were preserved through ceremonies or rituals, Inty Raymi, Pachamama.
Publicizing the calendar of festivities around the Sun, provides us with an ancestral tool for understanding Interreligious Dialogue, promoting environmental protection and address climate change that requires fundamental changes in values, mentalities and behavior patterns.
In 2019 the United Nations recognized June 21 as the "International Day of Solstice Celebration.
