Every year on September 21st, URI members around the world join fellow peacebuilders in celebrating the United Nations International Day of Peace (IDP), a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples. URI celebrations take many forms; from city-wide marches to heartfelt discussions, from interfaith picnics to multi-cultural music concerts, members join in recognition of a shared hope for peace on earth.

In the photo above, two children plant a tree in honor of Peace Day in 2015. They are members of Interfaith Peace Building on Natural Resources Management, a URI member group in Cambodia that celebrates Peace Day every year with interfaith events promoting good environmental stewardship.
