Peace One Day. ( POD)

Dear Friends.

I founded Peace One Day in 1999 to document my efforts to create an annual day of global ceasefire and 
non-violence with a fixed calendar date. In 2001, POD achieved its primary objective. United Nations General Assembly
resolution (A/Res/55/282) was unanimously adopted by UN member states, formally establishing an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on the UN International Day of Peace, fixed in the global calendar on 21 September Ė Peace Day.

With the Day in place, PODís main aim is to raise awareness of Peace Day 21 September. POD is a non-profit organisation, impartial and independent of any government, political persuasion, corporation or religious creed.

Last year on 21 September, 27.6 million people from 200 countries did something for Peace Day. I hope youíll make your own commitment for Peace Day and log it on this website. By working together there will be Peace One Day. We look forward to hearing from you.

With thanks and best wishes
In peace
