The Peace Day Challenge exists to raise the profile of the International Day of Peace and to affirm peace as a real alternative to the violence we see every day in the news.
It is all about inspiring a day of action on September 21, focused on building peace through real-life activities and sharing on social media at #PeaceDayChallenge.
In 2015, the Peace Day Challenge reached 21 million people in 129 countries on social media, engaged dozens of organizations, and inspired activities in 36 countries & 21 U.S. states.
