Every year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. This year, Quakers joined 100+ peace building organizations in order to call on governments and the international community to:
- Move from commitments to action on peace in the 2030 Agenda across the three pillars of UN (human rights, peace and secuity and developments).
- Align crisis response with longer term prevention and peace building efforts;
- Protect and support civil society in fostering sustainable peace;
- Think local and act global: recommit to multilateralism as a safeguard for the most vulnerable.
