The World Coconut Day (WCD) is observed every year on September 2 to enhance coconut farming with focus on productivity and product diversification. The day is also celebrated to commemorate the formation day of International Coconut Community (ICC/Formerly APCC-Asian & Pacific Coconut Community). The 2019 theme is “Coconut for Family Wellness”.
It is important for the Community to promote the dimensions of basic wellness that include: Physical, Social, Intellectual, Spiritual, Emotional and Occupational. Wellness is holistic, it builds resilience and enables one to grow despite the challenges.
