World Chess Day

July 20, 2024

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 20 of July, repeating indefinitely

This World Day celebrates chess as a game with, as the UN delegate from Armenia argues, the ability to transcend national boundaries and break down political, social, and racial barriers. Chess teaches respect amongst players, strengthens education, and provides opportunities to realize gender equality by fostering a community of inclusion, tolerance, and understanding. Who knew chess could do so much?
