International Peace Day - how one man's dream has become a global reality

Peace One Day Ltd
Tuesday, 10th April 2012

It started with one man's crazy idea and few people believed it was possible.

Over the last 10 years, Peace Day has been proved as an opportunity for life-saving activities and action by individuals worldwide. Armies have stopped fighting, and a day of children's health care has been allowed in occupied territories that are usually inaccessible. International Peace Day is an annual opportunity for UN agencies and humanitarian organisations to focus their ongoing life-saving activities within a global context.

For Peace Day 21 September 2012, Peace One Day is calling for and working towards a day of total global ceasefire and non-violence – the Global Truce 2012 campaign. It is hoped that this will be the largest reduction in global violence in recorded history, both domestically and internationally – and the largest ever gathering of individuals in the name of peace.

Be a part of it. Don't ever believe that your dreams for a better world are too bold. That's the dominant cultural narrative. It is up to us to overturn it.
