The International Day of Peace, sometimes known as World Peace Day, is observed annually on September 21. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution 36/37, the General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to “commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples.” This year many events and celebrations are focusing on Climate Change for Peace. A variety of resources are available – a poster, postcard and web pages to get you started. Consider creating a public or private activity related to peace or attend one in your community. Observe a Minute of Silence at 12:00 noon. First inaugurated in 1984, it is a tradition in time zones around the world. This year on Saturday, Sept 21 be part of a “Peace Wave” of silence around the world. For additional activity suggestions and information, check out this website.
