In order to attend the call of the UN Secretary General, Kofi Annan, for a very comprehensive celebration of the Tenth Anniversary of the International Year of the Family in 2004, the World Family Organization, along with its affiliated NGO’s and Universities in 189 countries, as well as 127 Governments, took the initiative to call for a World Family Summit – WFS.

The main purpose of the various editions of the World Family Summit is to promote Family’s contribution to the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals following a multi-stakeholder approach. It constitutes the biggest partnership towards making the present and the future world with more peace, security, justice, tolerance, solidarity, prosperity and integrated by mobilizing and promoting the basic economical, political, socio-cultural and sustainable unit of the society – the Family.

The World Family Summit represents a legacy for the future generation, through the engagement of all sectors of Society in a “Learning – Dialogue – Action” process.
