The International Day of Peace was established by the United Nations by in 1981 and in 2001 they voted to make the 21st September a day of non-violence and cease fire across all participating Nations.
The day provides club with the opportunity to discuss with its members what “peace” is and support the International Day of Peace theme for 2019. The theme selected for this year is linked to Climate Action and the UN has 13 Actions which it is encouraging all to get involved in and support in a variety of ways.
Clubs can support by running sessions on Peace and what it means to them or alternatively raising awareness of Climate change as it is this years theme. To find out more via the UN please click here
