UNITED NATIONS INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE.

An event by Universal Peace Federation 2022.

The UN's Day of Peace celebrates the dream and vision of a harmonious union of the countries and peoples of the entire world. At the same time, we would like to make it a day where we allow ourselves to be inspired by new ideas, projects and actions that can create change in the world and bring us closer together. 

" In a global world we are connected and need each other, and therefore it is necessary to work towards a society and world of interdependence, shared prosperity and universal values. We must see our common humanity, one big human family rather than different skin colors, nationalities and religions. It is a prerequisite for lasting and genuine peace that all people experience that they can flourish. 

JAZZMOSPHERE TRIBUTE TO UNITED NATIONS INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE.

 I feel grateful and blessed. We are paying thanks to all the Peace activists and Ambassadors who have taken time to support and practice Peace in unity, diversity and freedom of prejudice.

 A great tribute to Peace. It's the very first time I'm going to see the two words "racism and peace" in the same headline, and it creates hope in the despair.

END RACISM, BUILD PEACE

It is a legendary and exclusive lineup of speakers and musicians giving tribute at Universal Peace Federations UN Peace celebration, at Christianborg Parliament.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres has decided that the theme for this year's Peace Day is: "Stop racism. Build peace." He notes, among other things, "Racism continues to poison institutions, social structures and everyday life in every society. It remains a driving force behind persistent inequality. It denies people their basic human rights, destabilizes societies, undermines democracies, erodes the legitimacy of governments, and . . . the links between racism and gender inequality are unmistakable.
