International Day of Peace 2016

21/09/2016

Today events are taking place all over the world to mark the International Day of Peace. Following the adoption of United Nations (UN) Resolution 36/37 in 1981, the 21st of September was designated by the UN General Assembly as a day devoted to ‘commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples.’

The theme of this year’s International Peace Day is ‘The Sustainable Development Goals: Building Blocks for Peace.’

A number of EPLO’s member organisations are organising events to celebrate the International Day of Peace:

In addition to the above-mentioned events, several EPLO member organisations have also marked the International Day of Peace by publishing a joint civil society statement entitled ‘Embracing the New Global Framework for Peace: A shared statement by peacebuilding organizations’.
