"International Day of Peace 2018"

United Nations International Day of Peace
September 21, 2018

This year's theme will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights.

Although the declaration states in article 3 that "everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person," it does not include an article on "right to peace."

That's why this year, the UN is asking: 'What does "The Right to Peace" mean to you?' and is encouraging people to share their ideas using the hashtags #peaceday and #standup4humanrights.

"Peace does not mean an absence of conflicts; differences will always be there. Peace means solving these differences through peaceful means; through dialogue, education, knowledge; and through humane ways."
