Peacebuilding - International Day of Peace

International Day of Peace

Established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1981, International Day of Peace – or “Peace Day” – was declared as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. URI has been a proud partner of International Day of Peace since our network's inception in 2000.

This year’s theme is the “Right of Peoples to Peace” and it promises to be marked by by various activities and events, ranging from peace walks to concerts, as well as art showcases, community outreach and peace education programs.
