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 the global crisis. 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.

In 2020 members of the Global Youth Assembly, drawn from almost 100 cities worldwide, gathered together on the occasion of the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations, to discuss imminent and impending global issues.

Next steps

The Youth As­sembly will re­con­vene on Peace Day 2021, in re­sponse to the UN 75 De­clar­a­tion, and present a number of actionable ideas related to the 10 themes lined out in the Peaceday 2020 Global Youth Assembly Declaration. 

It is our ambition to create an unprecedented historical event, where World leaders and Youth representatives from all of the United Nations come together to discuss how they can collaborate across borders, disciplines and generations.

In preparation for the Peaceday 2021 Intergenerational Assembly we will organize a series of dialogue meetings and events. If you subscribe for updates on the link below, we will keep you posted.
