International Day of Peace
Thursday 21 September 2017

 

Each year on September 21, the UN invites all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities and commemorate the International Day of Peace through education and public awareness on issues related to peace. In the quest for peace, UPF chapters around the world organize commemorations of the International Day of Peace each year.

The theme for 2017 is "Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All."

Programs may include:

  • Reading United Nations and UPF statements about the International Day of Peace
  • Observing one minute of silence
  • A forum on the theme chosen by the United Nations
  • Prayers and readings from various religions (English | French | Russian | Spanish), which can be read as representatives of various religions each light a candle or pour water into a common bowl
  • Music, art, dances, and food from various cultures
  • A march, rally, service project, or sports event (for examples, click here)
