Peace and Democracy: Make Your Voice Heard

Message from Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO, on the occasion of the International Day of Peace, 21 September 2011

Peace is more than the absence of war. It lies in the dignity of every woman and man. It is the tie that binds societies together in harmony with our environment. It is the foundation of legitimate states and the basis for stable international relations.

This vision created the United Nations. It is the goal that leads all of UNESCOs activities.

The 2011 International Peace Day is a chance to consider the stakes of peace in a world moving more quickly every day.
