Whatever you choose to do, please pauseÂ atÂ 12 NoonÂ local timeÂ andÂ join people all across the globeÂ in aÂ Minute of Silence/Moment of Peace.
In 1984, in commemoration of the annual International Day of Peace and in solidarity with the United Nations, the NGOÂ Pathways To PeaceÂ inaugurated theÂ Minute of SilenceÂ at 12:00 Noon in each time zone, resulting in a â€œPeace Waveâ€ around the world.Â Individuals, organizations, communities and nations are invited to participate in this shared and practical act of peace building on September 21.
This year’sÂ #peacedaycelebrates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: “The Right to Peace- The Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 70.” Learn moreÂ here:
