Unite for #PeaceDay, #21Sept

On Peace Day, 21 September we are bringing together 1000s of young people from Rwanda and the Great Lakes region of Africa to celebrate the power of the day in building peace in homes, schools & communities.

Here you can help us amplify this message to the world!

Peace Day is a day of global ceasefire and non-violence, unanimously adopted by every UN member state. This year we are marking the day with the Peace One Day Youth Celebration; an event to inform a new generation of peacemakers, which will be beamed live into Rwanda and the world on the Rwanda Broadcasting Agency network. With music, dance, sport and drumming, the voices of young people will be celebrated at the Petit Stade Amahoro to inspire others to take the message of Peace Day home with them.

This celebration will also feature the premiere of 'ONE', the Peace One Day Anthem produced by Coke Studios in Nairobi. This exclusive track has brought together artists from Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda celebrating the power of peace in Africa and beyond. This track will be available to download and stream on Peace Day and the money raised will help us continue to manifest action on the day throughout the Great Lakes region of Africa.

By joining this Thunderclap you are helping us spread this unique message of peace, while, at the same time, contributing to the day’s continued success.

Thank you for taking part and remember on 21 September you can join the conversation by following @JeremyGilley on Twitter and /peaceoneday on Facebook and sharing the #PeaceDay hashtag.

The Peace One Day campaign in the Great Lakes region of Africa has been made possible by the generous support of the Howard G. Buffett Foundation

    We are off!

    The 2015 thunderclap for Peace Day has launched and we are hoping this will be an incredible way to encourage support for an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence, Peace Day, 21 September. 

    This year we are celebrating the power of young peacemakers in Kigali, Rwanda with the Peace One Day Youth Celebration, empowering the next generation to take an active role in community-led peace-building. We think this message should reverberate across the globe, and that is why we have launched this thunderclap.

    So if you have already joined, thank you, please tell your friends, family and followers to join you...and if you haven't please do. Together we can stand together for the loudest call for lasting peace our world has ever seen.


Peace One Day

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 1999, Jeremy founded Peace One Day, a non-profit organisation, and in 2001 Peace One Day’s efforts were rewarded when the member states of the United Nations unanimously adopted the first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on 21 September – Peace Day.
