BHR4All Partners with Peace Coalition

Peace One Day launched the Partnerships for Peace Coalition for Peace Day 2018 in July 2018. BHR4All has been announced as a partner of the alliance and will soon announce the activities taking place in September.

Peace One Day’s objective is to institutionalize Peace Day as 21st  September, making it a day that is self-sustaining, an annual day of global unity, a day of intercultural cooperation on a scale that humanity has never known.

In 1999, Jeremy Gilley founded Peace One Day, a non-profit organization, and in 2001 Peace One Day’s effort was rewarded when the member states of the United Nations unanimously adopted the first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on 21st September.

Jeremy Gilley is an actor turned filmmaker, who in the late 1990s became preoccupied with questions about the fundamental nature of humanity and the issue of peace. He decided to explore these through the medium of film, and specifically, to create a documentary following his campaign to establish an annual day of ceasefire and non-violence.

In 2012, the results of Peace Day were analyzed and found that, across the world, approximately 280 million people in 198 countries were aware of Peace Day 2012. For Peace Day 2013, due to activation on the day by every sector of society around the world, a 68% increase in the number of those aware of the day was increased- that’s 470 million people. Of that number, approximately 1-2% (4-8 million) behaved more peacefully in their own lives as a result, improving the world for thousands of others.

In 2014, the Peace One Day Report found that over 1 billion people were exposed to Peace Day messages. Of those exposed, 610 million is now aware of the day, with an estimated 10 million people behaving more peacefully on the day as a result. In 2015 this growth continued with an estimated 1.5 billion people now exposed to Peace Day messages with 709 million people now aware. Of those aware, an estimated 13 million people behaved more peacefully on that day. This progress has created a solid foundation for taking the message of Peace Day to 3 billion people by Peace Day 2016.
