International Day of Peace 21 September 2020

To mark its 75th anniversary, the UN has invited millions of people worldwide to join UN75, the largest and furthest-reaching global conversation on building the peaceful and prosperous future that we want.

The UN General Assembly has declared this International Day of Peace as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire.

Attend the virtual observance event by joining: (On 17 September 2020, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. EDT; NY local time). This online Student Observance will begin with a dialogue between United Nations Messengers of Peace and young people around the world.

The United Nations Secretary-General, Mr. António Guterres, has called for all of us to use these dialogues, as well as the International Day of Peace, to exchange ideas on how to achieve a global ceasefire, heal our planet and turn the COVID-19 crisis into an opportunity for peace. Let us build back better for more inclusive and peaceful societies.
