International Day of Peace—September 21 & related activities

From International Day of Peace (http://www.internationaldayofpeace.org/):

11 Days of Global Unity

The 11 Days of Global Unity is a way that people can be involved with this year’s global observance of the International Day of Peace.  Each of the 11 days has a theme, and most of these reflect the UN’s Millennium Develop Goals: Unity, Interdependence, Environment, Economic Justice, Health, Children & Youth, Women, Human Rights, Freedom, Disarmament, and the International Day of Peace.   The 11 Days ~ 11 Ways Campaign, features hundreds of events around the world by many organizations and their local affiliates.  This program is coordinated by We the World (http://we.net/11days) in cooperation with the United Religions Initiative (http://www.uri.org/), the World Peace Prayer Society (http://www.worldpeace.org/) and Pathways To Peace (http://www.pathwaystopeace.org/).

The 11 Days of Global Unity aims at strengthening the ideals of unity and equality, diversity and oneness, harmony and compassion and, above all, at advancing the culture of peace, I welcome this remarkable initiative.            ~ Ambassador Anwarul K. Chowdhury, Former Under-Secretary-General and High Representative of the UN.
