The International Day of Peace is observed around the world every 21st of September. On this day, the United Nations declared it as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations. Thru the Messengers of Peace Programme, the National Scout Organizations in the Asia-Pacific Region have been celebrating the Peace Day for five years now, encouraging and inspiring more and more young people to make a commitment for peace and peace actions.


This year’s theme is “Climate Action for Peace”, directing action towards SDG Goal No. 13 – Climate Action. The theme draws attention to the importance of combatting climate change as a way to protect and promote peace throughout the world.
