International Day of Peace – 2020
The International Day of Peace is observed around the world every 21st of September. The United Nations declared this day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace through observing 24 hours of non-violence and ceasefire, both within and among all nations. The Asia-Pacific Region, under the umbrella of Messengers of Peace Programme, has taken this initiative for six years to encourage and inspire young people and leaders to make this day a commitment day for year-round peace actions. In previous years, numerous activities are held in celebration of this day by several NSOs engaging thousands of young people in undertaking peace actions.
