Since 18 september 2001 we are celebrating the International Day of Peace by conducting a vigil for peace at the square in front of the Peace Palace in The Hague.
We have permission for the time between sunrise and sunset, and probably in 2005 will be the first time we will receive permission for a 24 hour vigil.
Realising the key position that our institutions of International Law play and will play in the establishment of a Culture of Peace and Non Violence for the Children of the World, we, the members of "Silence for Peace" feel very priviledged to live so close to the Peace Palace that we can celebrate the International Day of Peace here.
Every year we invite people to join, and bring their prayer, ceremony or silence to melt our energies into one bundle of support for the proces of growing towards a peaceful era, knowing ourselves connected with thousands of people worldwide, doing the same.
At noon we conduct the world peace prayer flag ceremony, and last year was the first year we could burn a ceremonial fire all day long.
Whenever you are in Europe, and even better, in The Netherlands, know yourself to be invited.

To answer the Question, How we Celebrate Peace Day???

At the World Council of Churches, we prepare for Worship on that day. There will be five stages of worship:-

1- Gathering of Prayer
2- The call of Christ.
5-Rainbow Stage.

One week before the 21st, we will ask colleagues to write the
word " Peace" in their own language. And through the whole week we will be praying for the different acts of violence that take place in different parts of the World.

Many thanks, and God be with you.

Your Sincerely.

Participants in the International Day of Prayer for Peace have received the following letter from the World Council of Churches:

The International Day of Prayer for Peace (IDPP) 2007 was a special day around the world. On the 21 alone, people from about 50 countries visited our web page to find information and probably prayers. You have contributed to this day by observing it in your community and we want to thank you for your efforts and commitment. Thank you to all of you who have gone through the trouble of letting us know what you and your church or community is doing! This is greatly appreciated and will encourage others next year.

There is evidence that an increasing number of people, communities, churches and networks around the world are observing the International Day of Peace (UN) and the International Day of Prayer for Peace (WCC) http://overcomingviolence.org/about-d....e.html As the people who believe that peace is possible get together and pray, as they work for peace and justice, the momentum grows so that leaders and political powers begin to pay attention. Always remember that it was the perseverance of people, not least in churches, who brought apartheid to end and the Berlin wall to tumble.

A sign, discovered last week by the Living Letters team to the US reads: When the people lead the leaders will follow. This is what the International Day of Peace is about. A growing number of people, increasing the momentum for more peace and less violence. Your prayers are a powerful testimony and they strengthen the work you and other do in peacemaking. Some of you have listed their commitment on the International Day of peace vigil website. (www.idpvigil.com)

This letter is being written on the International Day of Non-Violence. It is the first time, this international day is being observed and it is not well known yet. There are many international days, but we believe that no day of peace and no day of non-violence is a day too many.

Next year the prayers for the International Day of Prayer for Peace will come from the Pacific and it will also include a liturgy.

May every day become a day of peace and non-violence.

Blessings in the name of the Prince of Peace,

Rev.  Hansulrich Gerber

The International Day of Peace, September 21, engages millions of people around the world in the cultivation of a new world, a culture of peace: "we can nurture the seeds of peace and greater understanding that have an impact far beyond one day."

It is difficult to find extensive listings of the many events celebrating the International Day of Peace around the world.  An exception is the United Religions Initiative which lists events for the IDP 2014 by their affiliates in Kenya, Uganda, Ghana, Nigeria, Nepal, Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, Bulgaria, Russia, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, United States and the Philippines.
