INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE
In 2001, the General Assembly decided that International Day of Peace be observed every September 21, in accordance with Resolution 55/282. He stated that "International Day of Peace will be observed from now on as a day of ceasefire and non-violence globally, so that all nations and peoples feel motivated to comply with a halt of hostilities throughout that day."
He also invited member states, united nations system organizations, and regional and non-governmental organizations to adequately commemorate International Peace Day by conducting educational activities and raising public opinion awareness and collaborating with the United Nations to establish a global ceasefire.
And, in its institutional message, the United Nations states that this day "gives us all the opportunity to reflect on the overwhelming moral, physical and material burden of wars, a burden that we bear in the present and that will also weigh on future generations".
There is a concept of peace that has negative connotations. It is the definition that says that peace is the absence of violence. We must take into account that there are two types of violence: direct and explicit (stabbings, bombs, wars...) and the other type is less explicit and more structural, for example, everything that has to do with the lack of conditions to have a decent life.
