At present, the world is divided into many small fragments which has led to a rampant increase in cases of violence. Living in peace has now become a need of the hour.

To address and address this, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed an International Day of Living Together in Peace. The day is celebrated on May 16 around the world, and with its annual celebration, it aims to inspire people to live together in unity and peace. Individuals can achieve this by listening to and respecting each other despite their differences.

While it is true that the world seems more polarized than ever, it is important to note that there is a long history of racism, prejudice and war.

International Day of Living Together in the History of Peace:

This day came about after the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming May 16 as the International Day of Living Together in Peace on December 8, 2017.

The first International Day of Living Together in Peace was observed in 2018. Since the end of the Second World War, the United Nations has had the mission to work for peace in the world. The year 2000 was recognized as the “International Year for the Culture of Peace” and from 2001 to 2010 the United Nations declared it the “International Decade for the Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the children of the world”.

These two events led to the adoption of a resolution for the formation of the International Day of Living Together in Peace.

International Day of Living Together in Peace Meaning:

This day is of great importance because every year the United Nations invites its member countries to come forward and promote reconciliation and unity. This goal of reconciliation and unity can be achieved if countries decide to work with communities and leaders to foster feelings of forgiveness and compassion.
