The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire. In line with this, we also commemorate the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons in support of achieving global nuclear disarmament, one of the oldest goals of the United Nations.
Let’s get together and listen to Dr Sue Wareham share her thoughts on Australia and the UN’s call for Member States to support a “sustained humanitarian pause” to local conflicts. The global ceasefire must continue to be honoured, to ensure people caught in conflict have access to lifesaving vaccinations and treatments.
We invite you to join the efforts of the United Nations family as we focus on recovering better for a more equitable and peaceful world. Celebrate peace by standing up against acts of hate online and offline, and by spreading compassion, kindness, and hope in the face of the pandemic, and as we recover
