Peace One Day is leading the process of building coalitions to support the institutionalisation of Peace Day and we are hoping that these global coalitions will inspire you to build your own and get your network involved in the process. Institutionalising Peace Day and making it self-sustaining is our legacy.
At least 1.5 billion people live in conflict affected and fragile states and are currently in urgent need of peace. (The World Bank: World Development Report 2011: Conflict, Security and Development)
Peace One Day partnered with one of the world’s largest peace-building NGOs, Interpeace, to bring together leading international non-governmental organisations to form the NGO Coalition. These organisations are committed to marking Peace Day around the world through their work. This large scale support of organisations working towards peace and sustainability, as well as those that need peace to carry out their work, will contribute to a global decrease in violent incidents on the day, adding to an overall goal of long-term sustainable peace.
