UNPKFC celebrating International Day of Peace 2023 with theme of ” Action for Peace”, Join on Sep 21
Bangkok (DT) – Each year the International Day of Peace (IDP) is observed around the world on 21 September.
The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire. Never has our world needed peace more.
This year’s theme is Actions for Peace: Our Ambition for the #GlobalGoals. It is a call to action that recognizes our individual and collective responsibility to foster peace.
Fostering peace contributes to the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and achieving the SDGs will create a culture of peace for all. Learn more on the United Nations website.
This is UNPKFC’s 7 year celebrating the UN International Day of Peace. At this free event, there will be a host of activities and reflections on the 2023 theme, Actions for Peace. Our active collaboration and empathy is needed in these times to build a world of peace, understanding, respect, equity, and safety for all peoples. After the delivery of the peace messages, there will be a gathering around the Peace Pole – a symbol of hope for Bay Area communities and peace on Earth for the global family.

About the International Peace Corps Association
International Peace Corps was founded in 2018 to help people find peaceful solutions to conflict. At that time, the number of conflicts between countries was decreasing, but there was an alarming increase in the number of conflicts within countries. Both types of conflict were undermining development and leading to gross violations of human rights. Identifying and highlighting individual abuses of human rights was not enough; a different approach was desperately needed. It was out of this urgency that International Alert was born.
Working with people directly affected by violent conflict to find lasting solutions, Shaping policies and practices to reduce and prevent violence, and to support sustainable peace.
Collaborating with all those striving for peace to strengthen our collective voice and impact. We believe that peace is more than just the absence of violence. While the period after fighting stops and a return to normality is welcome, stability frequently masks the reality that grievances or other causes of conflict have not been addressed and may erupt again. Peacebuilding organizations such as Alert ultimately strive to promote what is described as ‘positive peace’.
