The United Nations' International Day of Peace - marked every year on September 21 - is a global holiday when individuals, communities, nations and governments highlight efforts to end conflict and promote peace.
Established by U.N. resolution in 1982, "Peace Day" has grown to include millions of people around the world who participate in all kinds of events, large and small.

September 8th, 2009
In Afghanistan, UNICEF (UN’s Children Fund ) and UNHCR (UN’s Refugee Agency) are organizing sport events and art contests for youth. UNAMA is holding peace discussions with religious leaders. DIAG (Disbandment of Illegal Armed Groups) is organizing ceremonies to hand over weapons. YIAA (Youth in Action Association) is organizing a Peace march! Thousands of youth are expected to participate. In addition, eight radio stations and two TV stations in the eastern region are broadcasting UNAMA produced 30 second PSAs on Peace Day!
And hopefully - many more lives will be saved through a ceasefire which will allow polio vaccinations for children!
