Here at Springboard, we have organised 6 annual Peace Day observances, events and celebrations. Peace Day however is not something that should just be thought of in September. It is truly something each and every one of us should strive to bring into our life each and everyday. That’s why we are calling on people like you to join with us and unite millions around the world to mark the Day and support the message of non-violence where we live, work, learn and play.
Find out how you can join us in celebrating this special Day.
The United Nations announce ‘Right of Peoples to Peace’ as the 2014 theme for International Day of Peace. In the countdown to 21 September the UN call on all nations to unite as a human family and for the international community to act earlier in the face of human rights violations. They ask for all to mark the Day and celebrate the value of diversity and strength of unity.
7th year for Springboard’s Peace Day Campaign
2014 marks seven years since Springboard began its journey to raise awareness of the International Day of Peace and make a unifying call for all individuals, organisations and institutions to publically or privately promote non-violence where they live, work, learn and plan. We recognise we have come a long way, but given the recent racist attacks we are deeply aware we have much more to do. So make your voice heard and mark 21st September!
Join Springboard's local campaign to raise awareness of the International Day of Peace and promote non-violence where we live, work, learn and play. Follow us and all the other Peace Day news on Twitter with the #PeaceDay hashtag.
