Peace Day History
United Nations declared September 21 st as the International Day of Peace in 2002 – the USA, and every member of the United Nations has agreed to wage peace on 9/21, every year, to get humanitarian aid to children in war-torn areas.
In 1981, the United Nations unanimously agreed to wage peace one day a year to get
humanitarian aid to children in war-torn areas. It only took them 20 years to agree on the date of September 21 st. Since it's ratification in 2002, the United Nations has chosen a theme for each year's Peace Day. This year's theme is 'Climate Action for Peace' which we are calling fostering Peace with Nature.
