International Day of Peace 2015

International Day of Peace 2015

The United Nations' International Day of Peace, marked every year on 21 September, is a day when individuals, communities, nations and governments are encouraged to highlight efforts to end violent conflict and promote peace.

The theme for this year is ‘Partnerships for Peace – Dignity for All’. This theme highlights the importance of working together in partnership to strive for peace. Working for peace in our communities and across the world relies upon cooperation and collaboration between governments, civil society, the private sector, faith-based groups and other non-governmental organisations.

The UnitingJustice International Peace Day resource highlights some of those partnerships that Uniting Church in Australia members and congregations have developed since the inception of the church in 1977 – partnerships with people of other faiths, between neighbours who find themselves in conflict, between Christians and other concerned citizens, and between Australian Christians and our partners overseas.

The UnitingJustice Australia interactive International Peace Day Resource is available for download below. Thank you to all our wonderful contributors.
