41] – This year, The United Religions Initiative, in consultation with The World Peace Prayer Society and Pathways To Peace are launching a campaign to build an unprecedented coalition of organizations and other change agents to take action. To join in this global campaign of unity, visit www.we.net/11days or go to 11days11ways@WeTheWorld.org.
"11 DAYS – 11 WAYS" for a more peaceful, just and sustainable world. This campaign will highlight 11 dimensions of change which call forth the values, spirit and service needed to move us towards a culture of peace and a world that works for all. The special project of the Culture of Peace Initiative is the 11 Days of Global Unity, which begins on Sun., Sept. 11 and ends on Wed., Sept. 21, the International Day of Peace. This year's vastly expanded program has the theme "11 DAYS – 11 WAYS". Each day will focus on a major area of concern for humanity and will feature observances, educational programs and practical acts that support these concerns. The UN Millennium Development Goals (MGD's) will be incorporated into these daily events.
On the International Day of Peace, promote global military ceasefire; call for a day of nonviolence in media; work to establish departments and ministries of peace in nations around the world; highlight our personal and collective progress towards a culture of peace; make a personal commitment to doing something in our local areas; observe a Minute of Silence at 12 noon, as requested by the UN Secretary General.
