Over the last few years, CCCUN has collaborated with Unity Foundation to help publicize the 2016 Peace Day Global Broad-cast which streams live from the UN's #PeaceDay resource page, from September 20th to the 21st. Viewers will enjoy peace mes-sages from citizens around the world, including such notables as Jane Goodall, Michael Douglas, Paul McCartney, Tavis Smiley, Marianne Williamson, Dolores Huerta and others.
Unity Foundation produces the Peace Day Global Broadcasts in association with PeaceChannel. Peace Day’s theme for 2016 is The Sustainable Development Goals: Building Blocks for Peace. “The 17 Sustainable Develop-ment Goals are our shared vision of humanity and a social contract between the world's leaders and the people,” says UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. “They are a to-do list for the people and our planet, and a blueprint for suc-cess.” Click here for the broadcast.
“The United Nations once dealt only with Governments. By now we know that peace and prosperity cannot be achieved without partnerships involving Governments, international organizations, the business community and civil society. In today’s world, we depend on each other.” — Former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan
