In 1981, the United Nations unanimously established September 21st as the International Day of Peace. This day is devoted to:
“Strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.“
Since this is an international holiday, there are many different ways in which people can show their hope that one day we will live in a world where people are at peace with each other and the living beings in nature.
People all over the world have developed their own traditions around this concept, so it may be a bit overwhelming which is why we have a few ideas few ideas to get you into the swing of things.
We hope that these ideas have inspired you to consider ways to promote peace in your home, your local community and ultimately the world at large. “One small step for peace, one giant leap for humanity.” Let’s take that small step together.
