FOREWORD FROM JEREMY GILLEY Today marks two months to Peace Day 2017!
Well done to everyone for making this day such a success over the years. Peace Day 21 September is now becoming institutionalised worldwide; and that’s because so many people are embracing the day and taking action.
This year marks the fifteenth anniversary of the first celebration of Peace Day as a day of ceasefire and nonviolence with a fixed calendar date. We wanted to highlight a number of inspiring initiatives from previous campaigns, across different sectors, in the hope that it galvanises you to go as big as you can for Peace Day 21 September 2017 – the 15 year celebration.
Please tell us about your upcoming Peace Day activity, so we can inform as many people as possible. With just over 60 days to go until Peace Day, it’s time to get prepared for peace. Tell your friends and family, get your communities involved – together we can make a difference. Good luck with your plans. We look forward to hearing from you.
