The International Day of Peace (Peace Day) provides an opportunity for individuals, families, classes and communities to create practical acts of peace on a shared date. It was established by the United Nations and the first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982.
Get involved and organise your own peace day event. It can be as simple as lighting a candle or as complex as organising a peace concert for thousands of people. To find out what’s going on around the world on peace day, or for ideas on how to get involved go to: http://internationaldayofpeace.org
Also the United Nations is looking for stories from young people around the world who are working for peace. Send your stories to Anna Fritzsche at firstname.lastname@example.org and Eleonore Kopera at email@example.com.
