2021 (MMXXI) is the current year, and is a common year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2021st year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 21st year of the 3rd millennium, the 21st year of the 21st century, and the 2nd year of the 2020s decade.

2021 is largely defined by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 2021 is scheduled to host most major events that were originally scheduled for 2020, including the 2020 CONCACAF Nations League Finals, Eurovision Song Contest, UEFA Euro 2020, 2020 Summer Olympics, 2021 Copa América and Expo 2020, events that were postponed or cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[1]

The United Nations declared 2021 as the International Year of Peace and Trust,[2] the International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development,[3] the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables,[4] and the International Year for the Elimination of Child Labour.[5] The Catholic Church has proclaimed 2021 as the Year of Saint Joseph.[6]
