When: 19 September 2019
Where: United Nations Office Geneva Room: XVI
On September 19th, 2019, we attempt to bring together at the UN Geneva,
actors from Diplomatic Missions, Civil Society, Religions, and Media to explore possibilities of walking together towards World Peace.
Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on
September. The General Assembly of the UN declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. We believe Civil Society plays a crucial role in helping countries to keep with it and for it.
To make it possible to build a peaceful society, the 17 Sustainable Development goals were adopted in 2015 by the United Nations Member States to walk the needed steps to achieve economic and social development for all people everywhere, ensuring that their rights were protected.
Sustainable Development Goal 16 « Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions » calls for promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, providing access to justice for all and building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.
A peaceful society is one where there are justice and equality for everyone.
Peace will enable a sustainable environment to take shape, and a sustainable environment will help promote peace.
Such a task cannot be let alone to the governments of nations, and so civil
s ociety organizations, religious and non-religious, have the power and responsibility to unite all individuals, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinions, national or social origin, property, birth or another status.
It is, therefore, the intention of this event to promote unity and dialogue
between those who are different and show practical and useful tools that civil society and governments can use on their journey to achieve, keep and improve peace that will last for generations to come.
