International Day of Peace, September 21, 2014

1st Jan 2013

The International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21st September each year.

Peace education and peace building have received a new boost in World Scouting since 2011, when the Messengers of Peace (MoP) initiative was launched. The initiative has two components, the MoP Support Fund and the MoP Global Network. Through the Support Fund, MoP offers support and resources especially for those National Scout Organizations of WOSM in need of such support to help start projects and initiatives for their Scouts to be engaged in peace building. The Global Network of MoP aims to reach out to 20 million Scouts coming from all corners of the world to gather through Internet communities and to inspire each other to engage in small actions of social services and peace building in their local communities, as individuals and in small local groups. Members of the Network subsequently share each of these achievements on the Internet, thereby continuing to inspire others and creating a ripple effect. In these initiatives by World Scouting, peace is defined in broad terms, not just from the perspective of the absence of war, but more so to have a strong, cohesive society, working together for what they see as best for their future to co-exist peacefully.
