Dear NGO Colleagues,
Today, 13 June 2013, we start the 100-day count-down to the International Day of Peace, which is celebrated on 21 September each year.
We want to share with you the message that the Secretary-General has issued for the day, in which he calls governments, civil society, and other stakeholders to support peace-related projects, as well as other relevant information on the International Day of Peace.
The message can be accessed through the International Day of Peace website and read in all 6 official languages.
Attached to this message you can also see the visual identity for this year’s theme: EDUCATION FOR PEACE.
