International Day of Peace

September 21st is the International Day of Peace.  This years theme is THE RIGHT OF PEOPLES TO PEACE.

To the Mountain Peacemakers the International Day of Peace is a stepping stone to invite peaceful dialog and solutions into our everyday experience.

The Mountain Peacemakers are a collective of  Watauga, Ashe, and Avery county citizens, working to build a network of action toward the goals of the United Nations sanctioned, globally celebrated occasion, The International Day of Peace.

The goal, defined by the United Nations, is “a day of global ceasefire and non-violence, an invitation to all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities for the duration of the day.”  Of course, there is more to it than this.  Peace requires multilateral commitments from all levels of society from the interpersonal to national agendas.  Opportunities are endless; it is truly up to us as global citizens.

Please join us in this year’s International Day of Peace celebration, Sunday September 21st, 2014.  A full list of events is available on the EVENTS tab.


A note from Jeremy Gilley, founder of PEACE ONE DAY:

“As I write this, I am in the Democratic Republic of Congo again meeting with more key individuals from UN agencies and international NGOs that will be crucial in helping us to mobilize on Peace Day in the DRC. I have also just attended the amazing Amani Peace Festival where important connections were made which will be helpful in producing our concert on 21st September in Goma.”
