Campaign : United Nations Peace Education Day
The United Nations has declared 2021 as the International Year for Peace and Trust. What better time to launch a campaign for a United Nations International Peace Education Day! The United Nations has established more than 150 international days for different humanitarian themes. However, there is no day dedicated specifically to the theme of peace education. Because peace education is central to the United Nations central mission, it certainly deserves a special day for public awareness -– a day to promote peace education throughout the world.
