This year, the theme for the day is “End Racism. Build Peace”, according to the United Nations.
(Creating Peace).The UN aims to build a society of peace, where every individual feels safe and can flourish regardless of race. To ensure global peace, tackling racism is the focus, especially now, when the world has suffered so much throughout the pandemic and the wars in different nations causing people to give up their homes. #peace
In 1981, by unanimous United Nations resolution 36/37, the General Assembly declared there to be a day devoted to “commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples.”The first International Day of Peace was celebrated in 1982, post which September 21 was announced as Peace Day. A major milestone arrived two decades later, in 2001 when the General Assembly unanimously voted to designate the Day as a period of non-violence and cease-fire. #peace
