Edlodge recognises World Standards Day: 14th October
From the alarm clock that we wake up from to the mattress we lean on each night at the end of the day, everything is possibly governed by certain standards that we set our space with.
But is that all, or do standards form a wider portion of our lives? Actually, it does. The roads we drive on, the way electricity runs throughout the world, the way satellites provide us the internet. Everything is regulated by international and national standards.
Standards that aim to put out the best products and services for us, uplift our quality of lives in numerous manners.
To recognize this, World Standards Day is marked every year on 14 October. The aim is to educate consumers, policymakers and businesses on the importance of standardization. It serves as an opportunity to raise awareness among nations and their citizens and encourages them towards a better quality of life.
This year, the theme is "Shared Vision for a Better World: Incorporating Sustainable Development Goal (SDG3) for Good Health and Well-Being." SDG3 focuses on ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all. It is one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations in 2015. The aim is to complete them by 2030.
This day is organized and led by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), which are the primary global developers of international standards.
In a world that’s developing technology so fast, at one hand, products and services need to be better and better to fit the various norms. On the other hand, there are people suffering from malnutrition, hunger and lack of proper shelter; which in turn affects their overall health and well being. These organizations address this issue by focusing the theme on the subject that needs it the most. The standards help us in making sure things are safe, efficient, and the same quality across the world. It is a day to celebrate and recognise their hard work.
Along with this, they address environmental concerns, play a pivotal role in public health, and ensure reliable infrastructure. The collaborative process of establishing international standards fosters global cooperation and diplomacy, making it a day that celebrates shared progress and excellence.
We, at Edlodge Foundation, try our best to keep the standards of our organization at best, by incorporating rules, regulations and policies, so that no volunteer faces any difficulties, starting from the hiring to the off-boarding process.
