Peace One Day




Global day of ceasefire and non-violence. Began with a campaign launched by film maker Jeremy Gilley in 1999, and supported by Nobel prize winners, artists, musicians, religious and political leaders and millions of people around the world -now officially recognised by the UN. The campaign’s most important task, however, has only just begun – to let the world know! Get involved, make a commitment to mark September 21st as a day of peace!
