On this day each year, the United Nations calls on all nations and people to put down their weapons and reaffirm their commitment to living in harmony with one another. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace. Every year they put forth a different theme, this year we will be, “Shaping Peace Together”.
