PEACE DAY AUSTIN: SEPTEMBER 11 - SEPTEMBER 21, 2018


Every year on the International Day of Peace, the United Nations calls on the people of the world to reaffirm their commitment to living in harmony as members of a single human family.

 

Perhpas that affirmation begins by connecting with that deep peace that abides within each of us, and then reaching out to others from that place. 

 

Join with people across the region and around the world to strengthen the ideals of peace on personal, local and global levels. Consider what you will do to build peace in your world for Peace Day Austin 2017.

 

Please take a look at the activities on the various pages in this section – Children & Youth, The Arts, Nonviolence, Environment, Global Initetc., and create your plan!

ENGAGE IN PEACE DAY IN WAYS MEANINGFUL TO YOU

You don’t have to organize or attend an event to participate in Peace Day. Individuals can observe Peace Day in whatever way is personally meaningful. Take time for quiet reflection, volunteer in your community, commit to more peaceful communications in your home, share some peaceful time with someone who needs support, learn about a global issue related to people or the environment — all are ways you can engage in this global day.

 

And everyone can observe the Global Minute of Silence that is happening all over the world at 12 NOON on Peace Day, September 21.
