We are delighted to announce that Bahrain for all, all for Bahrain has been accepted as a member of the UN Peace One Day NGO Coalition Group. Peace One Day’s objective is to institutionalise Peace Day 21 September, making it a day that is self-sustaining, an annual day of global unity, a day of intercultural cooperation on a scale that humanity has never known.
Peace One Day is impartial and independent of any government, political persuasion, corporation, or religious creed. Through a multi-platform approach, Peace One Day utilises different tools to raise awareness, advocate for Peace Day and engage the global community in its broad observance. Peace one day is not only about a reduction of violence in areas of conflict, it is also about reducing violence through a series of coalitions in our homes, communities, and schools.
In 2016 approximately 2.2 billion people were exposed to Peace Day messages through activities ranging from radio broadcasts to social media campaigns. Across the world, an estimated 940 million people were aware of Peace Day in 2016.
