Peace Days

In 1981, the United Nations declared September 21st to be the International Day of Peace (IDP). IDP provides an opportunity to highlight and encourage the development of activities aimed at creating a kinder, more peaceful and more harmonious society.

Since 2015, the Peace Network for Social Harmony has had the pleasure of coordinating Montreal’s Peace Days celebrations, with activities taking place before, after and on the IDP itself. We feel fortunate to work with so many wonderful partners in this initiative, including those from the community, cultural, educational, and philanthropic sectors. These partners organize an array of activities each year that enable Montrealers to contemplate and to take concrete action for peace.

The Peace Network assembles these activities under the banner of Peace Days; it is a special moment on the calendar to highlight the peace builders of our city and their tremendous efforts.  The rich and diversified Peace Days programming includes more than fifty activities each year, grouped into four main categories: In Dialogue; Learning; Community; and Arts and Culture.  Given the current health context, many activities this year will take place online.
