A kindness. A smile. A helping hand.

Is courage enough to create lasting peace?

For Forest Whitaker, “a spirit of solidarity” is vital to forge a lasting peace.

On International #PeaceDay, the #UNESCOCourier invites you to define PEACE IN YOUR OWN WORDS.

The Top 10 messages will be published in the Courier at the end of the year.
