Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire.
Amid the global pandemic and climate emergency, global peacebuilders call on governments to invest in peace.
Over 200 organizations, including Casa Generalizia della Societa del Sacro Cuore, release a statement on September 21 for International Day of Peace. The statement calls on governments to work together for peace to achieve global transformation for justice.
Let us see what peace can do. Peace is the way.
