Together they form a powerful blueprint of change
for a peaceful, sustainable, transformed world
||"The 11 Days of Global Unity aims at strengthening the ideals of unity and equality, diversity and oneness, harmony and compassion and, above all, at advancing the culture of peace. I welcome this remarkable initiative." - former Under-Secretary-General and High Representative of the UN Ambassador Anwarul K. Chowdhury
|"As an Honorary Co-Chair of the 2004 launch of 11 Days of Global Unity, I am excited to see its tremendous growth and development."
- bestselling author and speaker Deepak Chopra
||"On the occasion of 11 Days of Global Unity, culminating on the International Day of Peace, we invite you to join us in a movement without which all the other movements for change cannot be successful. The crucial movement we are talking about is the shift from 'I' to 'WE'." - Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu
|"Together we want to celebrate the 11 Days of Global Unity. It's time for us to realize that we are a part of all the suffering in the world - those who are hungry and starving, all those animals that face extinction. Then we begin to make the change& from 'I' to 'WE'. It's WE, We, The World. It's us together. Because it's when we all get together that we will make the changes we must make. We are the world." - Primatologist and UN Messenger of Peace Jane Goodall

Your participation will contribute an essential piece to the incredible mosaic that is quietly shaping the future of our world. During the 11 Days, and the months leading up to them, we invite you to join this global campaign in a variety of ways:
Together we can build a world that works for all.
The U.N. International Day of Peace was started in 1981 as a day to announce and celebrate ceasefires in conflict areas around the world. It began as a moveable date taking place on the opening day of each new Session of the U.N. General Assembly in September. In 2001 the opening day of the new U.N. Session was scheduled for September 11th. So the International Day of Peace actually coincided with the tragedy of 9/11. A U.N. resolution permanently fixed the International Day of Peace on September 21st.
All agents of social change who recognize their own work in one or more of the 11 Days - 11 Ways Themes, as well as those who provide the financial support that makes their work possible, are invited to join in this global campaign of unity.
