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 IDP 2014 tab.
