International Day of Peace September 21, 2015

Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The General Assemblyof the United Nations has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. 

The theme of this year’s commemoration is “Partnerships for Peace – Dignity for All” which aims to highlight the importance of all segments of society to work together to strive for peace. The United Nations invites all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.
