Countdown to the International Day of Peace!
URI North America The International Day of #Peace is just 30 days from today! As this is the 30th anniversary of the General Assembly Declaration on the Right of Peoples to Peace, the theme of this year’s International Day of Peace is the “Right of Peoples to Peace”. This anniversary offers a unique opportunity to reaffirm the United Nations commitment to the purposes and principles upon which the Organization was founded. The Declaration on the Right of Peoples to Peace recognizes that the promotion of peace is vital for the full enjoyment of all human rights. Along with the United Nations, URI North America invites all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.
