International day of Peace – Education for Peace

Secretary-General’s Message

The International Day of Peace is a time for reflection – a day when we reiterate our belief in non-violence and call for a global ceasefire.  We ask people everywhere to observe a minute of silence, at noon local time, to honour those killed in conflict and the survivors who live with daily trauma and pain.

This year we are highlighting Education for Peace.  Education is vital for fostering global citizenship and building peaceful societies.
