21/09: international day of peace #4
Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peaceful collaboration, both within and among all nations and peoples.
The coronavirus disease has added a new dimension to Peaceday 2020. For the first time in history, people all over the world are having the same concerns about how we rebuild the world beyond the pandemic.
Young leaders from 96 cities are now stepping up to the challenge. On 19 September 2020 they will come together, online and onsite, to take counsel on how we can turn the crisis of the pandemic into an opportunity for global renewal.
The Global Youth Assembly will open at 9am and close at 7pm in 4 different time zones. Inspired by the Doughnut Economy model, the dialogue at the 12 virtual tables will focus on the burning question:
"How can we meet the needs of all - within the means of the planet?"
The conclusions from the assembly will be handed over to the UN on September 21, 2020.
Are you ready?
