International Day of Peace

World Peace DayPeace DayDay of Peace
Peace One Day is a non-profit organisation whose objective is to institutionalise the International Day of Peace. The United Nations had already declared the third Tuesday of September the International Day of Peace, Peace One Day aimed to resolve the confusion on which calendar day it fell, and on 7 September 2001, the United Nations General Assembly unanimously adopted a resolution formally establishing the UN International Day of Peace an annual Peace Day of global ceasefire and non-violence on 21 September. In 2013, Peace One Day launched a three year campaign in African Great Lakes to promote the International Day of Peace, and to manifest community action.
A new resolution was passed by the General Assembly, sponsored by the United Kingdom (giving credit to Peace One Day) and Costa Rica (the original sponsors of the day), to give the International Day of Peace a fixed calendar date, 21 September, and declare it also as a day of global ceasefire and non-violence.
