For Peace Day, Saturday 21 September 2013, we want to build on the incredible achievements of 2012, reducing violence around the theme: Who Will You Make Peace With?

For Peace Day to work, all sectors of society must be represented. In order to build a strong foundation for 2012, Jeremy launched the Global Truce campaign that involved the creation of a series of Peace One Day coalitions, each with a lead partner: the NGO Coalition; the ‘Reducing Domestic Violence’ Coalition; the Student Coalition; and the Schools’ Network. In 2013, Jeremy has launched a further two coalitions: The Faith Coalition and the Corporate Coalition. All members are committed to building and strengthening these coalitions, and taking action on Peace Day. Institutionalising Peace Day and making it self-sustaining is our legacy.
At least 1.5 billion people live in conflict affected and fragile states and are currently in urgent need of peace. (The World Bank: World Development Report 2011: Conflict, Security and Development)
Peace One Day partnered with one of the world’s largest peace-building NGOs, Interpeace, to bring together leading international non-governmental organisations to form the NGO Coalition. These organisations are committed to marking Peace Day around the world through their work. This large scale support of organisations working towards peace and sustainability, as well as those that need peace to carry out their work, will contribute to a global decrease in violent incidents on the day, adding to an overall goal of long-term sustainable peace.
