International Day of Peace
The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by the General Assembly of the United Nations. Two decades later, in 2001,the General Assembly unanimously voted to designate the Day as a period of non-violence and cease-fire.
The United Nations invites all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities during the Day,
and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.
2020 Theme: Sharing Peace Together
Today we struggle to defeat COVID-19 around the world. To do this, your voice is more important than ever. In these difficult times of physical distancing, this International Day of Peace will be dedicated to fostering dialogue and collecting ideas. The world will be invited to unite and share thoughts on how to weather this storm, heal our planet and change it for the better. Even though we may not be able to stand next to each other, we can still dream together.
The 2020 theme for the Day is “Shaping Peace Together.” Celebrate the Day spreading compassion, kindness and hope in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Stand together with the UN against attempts to use the virus to promote discrimination or hatred. Join us so that we can shape peace together.
