Founded in 1999 by filmmaker Jeremy Gilley, the non-profit organisation Peace One Day drove the initiative that led to the unanimous adoption by UN member states of an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on 21 September – Peace Day. With the day in place, Peace One Day’s objective is to institutionalise Peace Day around the world, making it self-sustaining.

You can find some great Peace One Day teaching resources on Promethean Planet which could be used in a PSHE lesson or an assembly on Friday. For more resources, visit the Peace One Day Eduation area.
