International Day of Peace is a day of global ceasefire and non-violence with a cessation of hostilities for the day. For 2013, the United Nations theme for this effort is “Education for Peace” which champions education that focuses on teaching youth to have mutual respect for others, the world we live in, and to help create a fairer, inclusive, and peaceful society.
