This year World UNITY Week (June 18-25) is itself a buildup to Peace Week 2022 (peaceweek.org), September 17-24. This period is a unique opportunity to unite for peace all around the world, as we prepare to celebrate the 40th occasion of the International Day of Peace on September 21, 2022.
June 18th, day one of World UNITY Week III, kicks off the “99 Days of Peace through Unity” closing on the final day of Peace Week, September 24th. These 99 Days are a call out to all individuals, groups, networks, platforms, initiatives and institutions dedicated to unity and peace. The 99 days are book-ended by the major events of World UNITY Week and Peace Week.
Peace doesn’t just mean Peace on Earth but just as importantly Peace with Earth as we reconcile our place within Nature and reestablish right relations with the “foundations of Life”. This story of our reconnection to Earth and each other is conveyed by this year’s theme for World UNITY Week – “Coming Home Together”.
