PEACE WEEK INVITATION
September 21st, 2022 is the 40th anniversary of the first celebration of the International Day of Peace (IDP) in 1982. Since 2001, September 21st has been set as the permanent date of this important global initiative. Peace Week embraces all the Peace events in September with Wednesday, September 21st, being the very heart of the week. September every year includes the UN High Level Forum on the Culture of Peace, the 11 Days of Global Unity from September 11 -21 and literally countless events around the world, all orientated around “Peace Day” – the IDP.
Peace Week 2022 is a unifying initiative that celebrates and amplifies the many voices and actions that are happening around the International Day of Peace on September 21st. This initiative is co-convened by a growing community of international organizations, grassroots leaders and global networks. This is a time of momentous action, as we unite and rise to give voice to how we are collectively creating the conditions for a global culture of lasting peace.
Peace Week 2022 offers a space where “We Can All Bring Our Peace” into a unified field of intention and action for a world that works for all. This initiative offers diverse opportunities for unifying the many inspiring efforts that are building momentum of people-powered peacebuilding.
3 Ways Peace Week Supports the Movement Towards a Thriving World For All
1. JOIN THE UP CONVERGENCE
The UP (Unity & Peace) Convergence is a “Deep-Collaboration” experience that brings together social innovators and their ideas and solutions in a safe space in which they can connect, cooperate, collaborate, and co-create with like-minded individuals from around the world. You are invited to join and or lead sessions dedicated to Peace through Unity towards a Thriving World for All of Life. Choose how you’d like to participate by completing the Participation Form.
During each day there will be plenaries with international speakers exploring a wide variety of topics related to our shared purpose.
2. 7 CORE NEEDS: UNITE AROUND A UNIVERSAL ACTION THAT BENEFITS ALL LIFE
The daily themes of Peace Week 2022 are inspired by the second primary task of Eco-Governance, which is to ensure that the 7 Core Needs of all humans and animals are met through guaranteed access to:
- Living Soil
- Healthy Water
- Vitalizing Food
- Fresh Clean Air
- Physical and Emotional Safety
- Comfortable Shelter
- The conditions needed for all to manifest their unique Life-enriching potential
Peace Week events are invited to integrate these foundational daily themes, starting with Living Soil on September 17th, 2022.
Peace Week 2022 also launches the global initiative of #7CoreNeeds as a unifying vision and practical pathway for rapid social and ecological healing. The initiative supports people of all cultures and ideologies to rise above our differences and organize effectively, as One Humanity, for the good of the whole.
Each day there will be inspiring plenaries, bringing together acclaimed experts and wisdom keepers who are leading whole-system pathways for addressing the 7 Core Needs, as well as practical steps for individuals and communities to self-organize for unified action.
