International Peace Day
On September 21st, the International Peace Day is celebrated world wide. According to the United Nations, the International day of Peace is dedicated to reinforcing the values of peace by observing a 24-hour period of nonviolence and cease-fire.
The first International Peace Day was celebrated by the UN General Assembly in 1981. The UN General Assembly unanimously voted to designate the day as a period when countries exercised nonviolence and cease-fire 20 years after it was formed.
“Recovering better for an equitable and sustainable world.” is the theme of this year’s International Peace Day in context of COVID pandemic. The international organisation has challenged its members to think creatively and collaboratively about ways to better assist everyone in recovering, developing resilience, and transforming the world into one that is more egalitarian, just, inclusive, sustainable, and healthy.
According to the United Nations, the coronavirus pandemic has disproportionately affected the poor and marginalised. The organisation noted that, by April 2021, over 687 million COVID-19 vaccine doses had been provided globally, but that over 100 countries had yet to get a single dose, highlighting global disparity in the face of the pandemic.
This International Peace Day is being used, in addition to healthcare, to draw attention to our natural environment, which is under threat from climate change and global warming. “We must make peace with nature,” the UN said in a statement.
