Peace One Day presents: The Peace One Day Celebration 2013 in The Hague
Peace One Day brought its 2013 Celebration to The Hague to mark the first hundred years of the Peace Palace.
This historic concert in front of the Peace Palace in The Hague formed part of our 24-hour Global Broadcast on Peace Day Saturday 21 September 2013. Since its inauguration, the Peace Palace has become a worldwide icon of Peace and Justice, housing the International Court of Justice, the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA), and the renowned Peace Palace Library.
It was a great honour to bring the 2013 Celebration to such an historic venue. The show contained performances from renowned international artists and extraordinary contributions from all over the world, raising awareness of the day and helping to build participation from individuals and organisations in every continent.

THE PEACE ONE DAY CELEBRATION COLOMBIA 2013

“Whenever I stand in front of a group of people, whether it’s two or two thousand, I talk them through the story of Peace One Day, the development of Peace Day 21 September and where it’s all heading. I tell them about all the different campaigns and the extraordinary growth in awareness and engagement on the day around the world. I do this so that people can understand in a very short space of time how institutionalising a day of peace is just a process. I do it so that people understand that the success of Peace Day is all down to individuals getting involved and taking ownership of the day. That’s what I want to do with this latest documentary – tell a simple story and inspire people to take the lead.” Jeremy Gilley, London, July 2013
Peace One Day brought together its partners to celebrate Peace Day 21 September, by participating in Live Global Moments via the YouTube Live platform, to inspire and empower the people of the world to come together as one on the day.
These were online forums lasting approximately 30 minutes each. Key individuals representing all the continents of the world, from diverse sectors of society, participated, including actors, musicians, artists, high-level United Nations or government officials and representatives of non-governmental and intergovernmental organisations. Social media was the key driver towards high level visibility, as Peace One Day activated its own networks and those of its partners in all sectors, as well as the online communities of the participants themselves.
Any number of people from around the world were able watch the Live Global Moments as part of the 24-Hour Global Broadcast on YouTube.
The focus for the questioning was Peace Day, 21 September and Peace One Day’s theme ‘Who will you make peace with?’
