Events of EFUCA
The International day of peace has been celebrated annually on September 21 since 2002. Initially, the holiday was celebrated on the third Tuesday of September — the opening day of the annual session of the UN General Assembly. The image of a dove with an olive branch in its beak is traditionally used as a symbol of peace. This day is proclaimed as the day of non-violence and ceasefire throughout the world. All countries were asked to refrain from conducting military actions on that day. Despite the fact that the event has existed for more than 30 years, the current political situation in some countries can hardly be called peaceful.
On this day, many events are held - that are designed to tell in detail about the war and its consequences, to call upon people all over the world to peace and peaceful existence. The event is celebrated at all levels. At enterprises and offices, this day is taken very seriously. Schools, universities and other educational institutions pay a lot of attention to this, because it is crucial to form a correct understanding of conflicts among young people. Moreover, non-governmental organizations play a big role in promoting the ideas of peace. Belarusian UNESCO clubs, as part of the world movement of UNESCO clubs, also widely celebrate this date every year.
