International Day of Peace (IDOP), is observed around the world on 21st September. Declared by the United Nation’s General Assembly, Peace Day is devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples
In 2021, let us commit to
Recovering better for an equitable and sustainable world
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. The pandemic has been accompanied by a surge in stigma, discrimination, and hatred, which only cost more lives instead of saving them: the virus attacks all without caring about where we are from or what we believe in.
Confronting this common enemy of humankind, we must be reminded that we are not each other’s enemy. To be able to recover from the devastation of the pandemic, we must make peace with one another. And we must make peace with nature. Despite the travel restrictions and economic shutdowns, climate change is not on pause. What we need is a green and sustainable global economy that produces jobs, reduces emissions, and builds resilience to climate impacts.
What can Scouts do?
Take the opportunity to engage young people, your friends, and leaders in peace actions and inspiring them to become active global citizens. Perform peace actions and do good deeds for the entire month of September (and beyond!)
