International Day of Peace | PHOTO GALLERY

The International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) is observed around the world each year on 21 September. 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.

Hilbert held events on campus to observe Peace Day, including a Global Feast for Peace, which featured international foods and creating individual peace flags; a minute of silence/moment of peace, which connects Hilbert with people around the world in observing a moment of silence in the noon hour in every time zone; and a presentation – Home Begins Again – which featured stories of conflict, displacement and, ultimately, hop that led people from around the wold to Western New York.
