The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.

Today, in 2019, still the World is a bad place for children. Few days ago, UNICEF published the picture from the UN headquarters in New York with 3,758 school backpacks laid at the United Nations, which show the grave scale of child deaths in conflict in 2018.

This year we also mark 70 years since the Geneva Conventions, the international laws that seek to promote humanity.

On the International Day of Peace, Princess Angelika Jarosławska-Sapieha posted on her social media an appeal for international peace. In her hand, we can see one of the SDG goals: Goal 16: Promote just, peaceful and inclusive societies. The threats of international homicide, violence against children, human trafficking and sexual violence are important to address to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development.

Children are the living messages we sent to a time we will not see It is an XXI century and still - millions of children and young people worldwide are affected by armed conflict. Today is a World Peace Day International Peace Day is envisioned to become a moment of global unity. We share a common destiny. We have to join hands to create a more compassionate world free from violence and hate. Building a peaceful future depends on youth leaders and our future is now. We, young people, all have strength, abilities, passion, and capacities to change the world, to make the world a better place. The force of Peace is stronger than hate and violence. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love and respect can do that.
