International Day of Peace 2023

International Day of Peace 2023: History, Date and Theme. Why do we celebrate this day every year?

Every year on September 21st, people around the world come together to observe the International Day of Peace, fostering global unity and promoting harmony among nations.

The first official International Day of Peace was celebrated on  September 21, 1981. This date was chosen because it coincides with the  opening session of the UN General Assembly

The theme for International Day of Peace 2023 is “Actions for Peace: Our Ambition for the #GlobalGoals.”

This theme recognizes that peace is essential for achieving the  Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are a blueprint to create a  better and more sustainable future for all.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 goals that aim  to create a more peaceful, just, and sustainable world for all.

These Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) serve as a comprehensive  roadmap for building a more equitable and environmentally sound future

They tackle the pressing global issues of poverty, inequality, climate  change, environmental degradation, and the promotion of peace and  justice.

These 17 interconnected Goals are vital to ensure that no one is left  behind, and our collective commitment is to accomplish all of them by  2030.
