On September 19-21, 2020, we the people will declare and celebrate the inaugural Peace Weekend, a long weekend featuring the world’s first global public holiday for the International Day of Peace.
With major events in New York City and other sites around the world, tens of thousands of international gatherings, as well as an anticipated 100 million+ participants via online platforms, media channels and more, Peace Weekend will be the largest ever collective action for peace in human history.
This is not just a day off, but an opportunity for all of us to take action – big or small – to create peace in ourselves, our families, communities, regions or nations. And by joining forces around the globe, we have the chance to collectively amplify the impact of our individual actions.
ONE YEAR TO PREPARE AND SHARE
On International Day of Peace 2019 we will launch a year long campaign to enable people on every continent to showcase and collaborate on their peace actions. By the time we reach Peace Weekend 2020 we will have the opportunity to create a wave of peace and unity like never before.
