International Day of Peace 2022 Theme and Significance
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 peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire. The International Day of Peace, also officially known as World Peace Day, is a UN-sanctioned holiday dedicated to world peace, specifically the absence of war and violence. It can be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone for humanitarian aid access. The day was first celebrated in 1981 and is kept by many nations, political groups, military groups, and people.
The theme for International day of Peace 2022 is -- “End racism. Build peace.”
As conflicts continue to erupt across the globe, causing people to flee, people across the globe have seen race-based discrimination at borders. As COVID-19 keeps attacking our communities, it is seen how certain racial groups have been hit much harder than others. As economies suffer, hate speech and violence have been directed at racial minorities. United Nations say we all have a role to play in fostering peace. And tackling racism is a crucial way to contribute.
"We can work to dismantle the structures that entrench racism in our midst. We can support movements for equality and human rights everywhere. We can speak out against hate speech – both offline and online. We can promote anti-racism through education and reparatory justice," the UN describes this year's theme.
