In 1999, Jeremy Gilley founded Peace One Day, a non-profit organization, and in 2001 Peace One Day’s efforts were rewarded when the member states of the United Nations unanimously adopted the first ever day of global ceasefire and non-violence on 21 September annually – Peace Day.
Every year since, countries and individuals around the world have continued to acknowledge Peace Day.
On Peace Day 2011, … Peace One Day will take the campaign for peace a step further with the launch of the Global Truce. On this day, we will have one year to manifest enough action and awareness worldwide to cause the biggest reduction in violence in history – where not only governmental figures the world over but individuals too will acknowledge an international truce and ceasefire.
