Today is ‪#‎WorldMusicDay‬ and we are highlighting our amazing music, dance and culture initiatives that you can harness to celebrate Peace Day! Last year, world-renowned ballerina Cynthia Harvey taught a class with Hong Kong Ballet dancers on ‪#‎PeaceDay‬ ‪#‎21Sept‬ to promote peace through dance. Amazing.

#FlashbackFriday  - Afghanistan in 2007, where ‪#‎PeaceDay‬ ‪#‎21Sept‬ created a day of ceasefire and non-violence with arms being laid down, even by the Taliban. There was a 70% reduction in violence on the day and 4.5 million children were immunised against polio. Amazing. So grateful.

On ‪#PeaceDay ‪#‎21Sept in 2015,‬ CISV Belgium visited a refugee camp in Brussels. There they met Marwan, a Syrian refugee, who shared his story with them. They ended the day playing games with children in the camp. Peace is built on understanding. This is a wonderful example of how we can build peace by taking time to meet new people with different cultures. ‪#‎WorldRefugeeDay‬

Good luck to Burger King in the #CannesLions Awards for their #PeaceDay #21Sept 2015 #McWhopper campaign! This campaign contributed in an extremely significant way to raise global awareness of Peace Day, with a massive 1.5 billion people being exposed to Peace Day messages last year.

Who Will You Make Peace With on Peace Day 21 September?
Introduction

Get involved:


Here’s how you can join the movement to institutionalise Peace Day 21 September.

About Peace One Day

In 1999, Jeremy founded Peace One Day, a non-profit organisation, and in 2001 Peace One Day’s efforts were rewarded when the member states of the United Nations unanimously adopted the first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on 21 September – Peace Day.

Peace One Day’s objective is to institutionalise Peace Day 21 September, making it a day that is self-sustaining, an annual day of global unity, a day of intercultural cooperation on a scale that humanity has never known. Inspired by a 70% recorded reduction in violent incidents on Peace Day in Afghanistan (source: United Nations Department of Safety and Security), and in order to build a strong foundation for 2012, Jeremy launched the Global Truce campaign that involved the creation of a series of Peace One Day coalitions, each with a lead partner: the Global Truce NGO Coalition; the Global Truce ‘Reducing Domestic Violence’ Coalition; the Global Truce Student Coalition; and the Global Truce Schools’ Network.

Through detailed analysis conducted with the support of McKinsey & Company, the Peace One Day 2012 report found that, across the world, approximately 280 million people in 198 countries were aware of Peace Day 2012 – 4% of the world’s population. The report further estimates that approximately 2% of those people (5.6 million) behaved more peacefully as a result. Peace One Day expects to double those figures for 2013, creating a solid foundation for informing 3 billion people about Peace Day by 2016. 

The achievements of Peace One Day’s work in 2012 have not only set an important marker for Peace Day 2013 and future Peace Days, but have also reinforced the value of this unique annual day as a foundation for long-term sustainable peace.

In 2013, through initiatives and collaborations with various parties, Peace One Day will set out to encourage organisations and individuals to take specific actions to reduce violence around the theme: Who Will You Make Peace With? In addition to the 2013 theme, this year Jeremy has launched a further two coalitions: The Peace One Day Faith Coalition and the Peace One Day Corporate Coalition.
