The International Day of Peace is on September 21st of each year and calls for a full day of peace and ceasefire throughout the world.
In this event, the “Peace Bell” is rung at UN Headquarters. The bell is cast from coins donated by children on all continents, and considered a symbol of global solidarity. It was given as a gift by Japan, and is referred to as “a reminder of the human cost of war.” The inscription on its side reads: “Long live absolute world peace.”[1]
Observance of the annual International Day of Peace is widespread across the globe. Celebrations now take place in every country.
