20 YEARS OF PEACE ONE DAY
This Peace Day, Saturday 21 September 2019, marks 20 years since the launch of Peace One Day at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London. This Peace Day, to mark this important milestone, Peace One Day is returning with a heartfelt celebration of all that's been achieved throughout the world. Watch this space for details.
Building peace one day at a time
Peace One Day is a non-profit organisation that was founded in 1999. In 2001 due to our efforts 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.
Throughout the years, millions of people have been active on Peace Day in every country of the world, and hundreds of organisations have carried out life-saving activities in areas of conflict. Peace One Day’s Campaigns and activities in Education, Music, Film, Sport, Dance, Art and Online have proved that the day works.
Through our own 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?
