The International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.The IDP was established in 1981 by resolution 36/67 of the United Nations General Assembly, coinciding with its opening session, which was held annually on the third Tuesday of September.
The TARGET PEACE online campaign joins the UN and other peace initiatives to inform people around the globe that violence, conflict and war have
robbed the planet of valuable resources for development. The online campaign calls on World citizens to be mindful of the fact that there is no path to peace because peace is the path as Ghandi puts it.
Like every other September 21, all nations across the globe will on Monday honour a cessation of hostilities through education and public
awareness on issues related to peace.
In 2001, the General Assembly by unanimous vote adopted resolution 55/282, which established 21 September as an annual day of non-violence and cease-fire. UN Secretary General Ban KI MOON calls for peace prevention via participation in the message below: "Over the next 100 days, let us stand with the millions of people across
the world who are suffering the devastating impact of violence and
conflict. Let us share ideas and plans for helping and supporting them
in their time of dire need."
