Peace Day Celebration on 20th of September

11 September 2018

Peace Day

To celebrate the International Day of Peace this year, we are asking all ISG students, faculty, and staff to wear white on Thursday, 20th September.

The theme for 2018 is The Right to Peace - The Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 70, which celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The International Day of Peace ("Peace Day") is observed around the world each year on 21 September. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.

Each year on the International Day of Peace, the United Nations calls on warring parties to lay down their arms and observe a 24-hour global ceasefire. The symbolism of a day without fighting is a crucial reminder that conflict can and must come to an end. But peace is about much more than putting weapons aside. It is about building a global society in which people live free from poverty and share the benefits of prosperity. It is about growing together and supporting each other as a universal family.
