May Peace Prevail On Earth



WPPS Supports
The International Day of Peace

September 21st

In 1981 the United Nations General Assembly passed resolution 36/67 declaring an International Day of Peace. In 2001, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a new resolution 55/282 declaring 21 September of each year as the International Day of Peace. The 2001 Resolution:

  • "Declares that the International Day of Peace shall henceforth be observed as a day of global ceasefire and non-violence, an invitation to all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities for the duration of the Day.

  • "Invites all Member States, organizations of the United Nations system, and non-governmental organizations and individuals to commemorate, in an appropriate manner, the International Day of Peace, including through education and public awareness, and to cooperate with the United Nations in the establishment of the global ceasefire."


You Can Be a Part of It!

Around the world, people will be planting Peace Poles, re-dedicating their Peace Poles, conducting World Peace Prayer Ceremonies, participating in community service projects, and observing the International Day of Peace in service and prayer for peace. You are encouraged to commemorate the day in whatever way you feel appropriate, whether that means organizing a large program with thousands of others, or silently taking a moment for peace by yourself. Send us your story and photos so we can include them in our annual report to the United Nations.

Remember to include the message and prayer
May Peace Prevail on Earth!
