The UN celebrates World Peace Day on Sept. 21

by Ms. Iman El Damarany(Egypt)



Today, 21 September is the International Day of Peace, where the United Nations General Assembly has devoted this history to the promotion of the ideals of peace. The United Nations Member States have adopted 17 goals for sustainable development, recognizing the need to take steps to achieve economic and social development for all peoples of the world. The world is at peace. These include resolving many issues, including poverty, hunger, health, education, climate change, gender equality, water and sanitation problems, energy, the environment and social justice. A society that enjoys peace is a society with justice and equality.

The 2018 International Day of Peace is the “right to peace” – this day is meant to celebrate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a historic document on human rights. The Declaration was adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations – which drafted representatives from different cultures and legal authorities from all over the world – in Paris on 10 December 1948 as a general standard of achievement for all peoples and nations.

In fact, this Universal Declaration – a document translated in more than 500 languages ​​worldwide – and although article 3 of the Declaration states that “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person”, which are essential elements of freedom, justice and peace in the world. , The Declaration did not contain a separate article on the “right to peace”





We can all support the goal of peace, justice and strong institutions by seeking to resolve the differences and conflicts that arise in our respective regions peacefully. We can be a part of solutions by taking small steps. We can stop injustice in our surroundings by pursuing a peaceful approach to problem solving and reporting possible crimes, including “bullying” on the Internet.

Achieving peace is not only a responsibility for the armed forces, but we all have a role to play as much as we can and in the context of the society in which we live, and to seek peaceful coexistence between our neighbors and colleagues and among the individuals we deal with. Called all heavenly religions.
