The UN International Day of Peace is almost here! The global URI community marks September 21 annually by celebrating peace in communities around the world and compiling an inspiring online directory. Pictured above is Angel Peace Foundation’s celebration of Peace Day last year. This URI member group, based in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India, gathered community members to discuss the importance of peace, then planted saplings in a community park. In addition, the group hosted a drawing competition on the theme of peace.
A similar art celebration will be held this year, hosted by URI on the theme of “Building A World.” You are invited to enter your artistic submissions now!
