MISSION:

The mission of 30 Days of Peace 2007 is to unite the strengths of Peace organizations and initiatives worldwide in a cooperative multimedia awareness and action campaign, to build a sustainable Culture of Peace for all humanity and the Earth.

OVERVIEW:

30 DAYS OF PEACE - is a global campaign like no other, emerging at a critical time in human history. For the first time, the world's leading Peace organizations will unite in an effort to motivate people everywhere, particularly youth, to take positive action for Peace in our personal lives, communities and nations.Via a multi-media outreach and call to action campaign, 30 Days of Peace will increase awareness and participation in year-round Peacebuilding efforts, in furtherance of the Culture of Peace Initiative, a UN-designated Peace Messenger Initiative.In 2007, the first annual 30 Days of Peace will begin on the anniversary of 9/11, and conclude on 10/10, the birthday of international journalist and musician Daniel Pearl. The central focus of 30 Days of Peace is the annual International Day of Peace (Peace Day) September 21st.

Each year, in September and October, an estimated 5,000 Peace-related events and media projects, touching millions of people, are produced internationally by over 2500 organizations, including United Nations agencies and leading Non-Governmental Organizations. In addition to promoting existing activities that occur during this month, 30 Days of Peace will launch a series of new projects, including an online community and educational portal; a music outreach tour; and a 30-day global prayer vigil.30 Days of Peace is not a celebrity driven entertainment event, but rather a massive cooperative campaign that unites many philosophically aligned organizations and events.
