World Consumer Rights Day 15th March

THEME: “Fair Digital Finance”

The theme for world consumer rights day 2022 is “Fair Digital Finance”. It calls for fair digital finance in the marketplace everywhere. It aims to encourage people to create insights and campaigns which are consumer-centered as well as inclusive, data protected, safe & private, and sustainable.

The consumer movement marks 15th March with World Consumer Rights Day every year, as a means of raising global awareness about consumer rights and needs. Celebrating the day is a chance to demand that the rights of all consumers are respected and protected, and to protest against market abuses and social injustices which undermine those rights.

World Consumer Rights Day was inspired by President John F Kennedy, who sent a special message to the US Congress on 15th March 1962, in which he formally addressed the issue of consumer rights. He was the first world leader to do so. The consumer movement first marked that date in 1983 and now uses the day every year to mobilise action on important issues and campaigns.

World consumer rights day holds a significant purpose and we can understand the same from the following points:

World consumer day can be used to spread awareness and make people sharp and smart consumers. It can protect consumers from greedy companies and fraudulent activities.

Everyone is a consumer in one way or the other, even the companies from whom we buy the goods. That is why it is important to celebrate this day which holds importance for everyone.

The more people are aware of their consumer rights and needs, the more change we can bring together.
