United Nations published this video item, entitled “International Day of Peace Youth Observance 2021” – below is their description.

On 17 September 2021 the United Nations Department of Global Communications (DGC) organizes an online youth observance for the 2021 International Day of Peace with the participation of the UN Secretary-General António Guterres, Messengers of Peace and students from around the world.

Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire.

In 2021, as we heal from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are inspired to think creatively and collectively about how to help everyone recover better, how to build resilience, and how to transform our world into one that is more equal, more just, equitable, inclusive, sustainable, and healthier.
