International Day of Peace

The International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) is observed around the world each year on September 21st. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.

Peace Day is a reminder to focus on peace and has grown into a global movement. This year’s theme is Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All.
