From the United Nations:
"The International Day of Peace, observed each year on 21 September, is a global call for ceasefire and non-violence. This year the Secretary-General is calling on governments and citizens to focus on nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation.
"On 13 June 2009, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon launched a multiplatform campaign under the slogan WMD – We Must Disarm to mark the 100-day countdown which lead to the International Day of Peace on 21 September.
"The International Day of Peace was established by the UN General Assembly in 1981 for “commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace within and among all nations and people.” Twenty years later, the General Assembly decided that 21 September would be observed annually as a “day of global ceasefire and non-violence" and invited all Member States, organizations and individuals to commemorate the day, including through education and public awareness, and to cooperate with the United Nations in the establishment of a global ceasefire."
The Virtual Peace Summit offers you an unprecedented journey of personal growth and collective change, as well as an opportunity to come together with people from around the world who deeply care about the future of our planet and the potential for humanity to make a profound shift beyond violence.
PeaceWeek will unite pioneers from around the world together for the largest virtual peace summit ever created, culminating with the United Nations' International Day of Peace on Sept. 21st.
It will be a celebration and exploration of everything that is working to foster peace, from the family level to whole nations.
