This year, to celebrate the International Day of Peace, we’re sharing the inspiring thoughts, ideas and stories of people who are working for peace across the globe.
Behind the scenes, people in regions of conflict are working to bring peace. Real people on the front-line who are overcoming extreme challenges, demonstrating creativity, courage and resilience to prevent violence and resolve conflict in their communities. 
Despite different backgrounds, professions, cultures and languages, these people all have a common goal – to make their communities and countries safer, more peaceful places to live. 
Read and share their stories, and help them to inform and inspire others to work for peace.
