Even though this year’s day of observance June 15 lands on a Saturday, the festivities won’t stop! Join us on our social media platforms as we continue to celebrate IDWIM 2024, showcasing the vibrant celebrations taking place worldwide.

We welcome you to join us for our dedicated IDWIM 2024 2-hour online event to be held on Tuesday, 18 June 2024.
