4 August 2022



International Day of Peace and URI

Established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1981, the International Day of Peace – "IDP" 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 the International Day of Peace since our network's inception in 2000.

2022 International Day of Peace Activities

The theme for the 2022 International Day of Peace is: End racism. Build peace. It draws attention to the importance of combating racism and building societies in which all people are treated equally.

Host your own events in celebration of IDP: in URI we have a strong tradition of celebrating International Day of Peace in many different ways, through acts of service, prayer gatherings, peace walks, concerts, art showcases, community outreach, and interfaith events that direct us towards peace. This tradition in URI goes back right to the days of URI's formation. You are encouraged to share your plans of how your Cooperation Circle will be marking International Day of Peace this year and be added to URI's 2022 event listing.

Artwork for your own IDP events: The graphics designed for this year's IDP, can be downloaded from this public Trello site. There are posters in multiple languages for you to use, so you are encouraged to make the most of them.
