In September 2001, the United Nations designated 21st September as International Day of Peace so that peoples and nations from across the world can jointly commemorate this Day of non-violence. Driven by our desire to ensure and celebrate peace as a cornerstone of our society, Springboard Opportunities launched the Peace Day campaign. This campaign aims to raises public awareness of Peace Day, and encourages people and institutions to mark the International Day of Peace by rededicating an ongoing commitment to non-violence where we live, work, learn and play.
On 21st September take the time to pause and join millions across the world to mark and celebrate the ideals of peace, through private reflection such as simply lightly a candle, or organising a public event or carrying out a school project to explore the meaning of peace.
