Solidarity and peaceful coexistence call for the day of living together in peace

According to the UN organization, the day of living together in peace constitutes a call for countries to increase reconciliation efforts and contribute to ensuring peace and sustainable development.

Culture of peace the United Nations vision for an interconnected and solid future

After the devastation of the Second World War, the United Nations was created with the aim of saving future generations from the scourge of war and building international cooperation to solve international issues in their various aspects. In confirmation of this, in 1997 the UN General Assembly proclaimed the “International Year of the culture of peace”, and the following year it proclaimed the “International Decade for a culture of peace and non-violence for the children of the world”.

By adopting its resolution in 1999 on the importance of the declaration and programme of action on a culture of peace, the General Assembly emphasized the urgent need to promote these values and principles in our global society. This declaration is based on the concept stated in the founding charter of UNESCO, where it was emphasized that “fortresses of peace should be built in the minds of human beings”. The General Assembly stressed that peace is not just the absence of conflict, but a dynamic, positive and participatory process that encourages dialogue and conflict resolution in a spirit of understanding and cooperation.

To achieve this noble goal, all forms of discrimination and intolerance must be eliminated, including racial, sexual, religious, cultural, political, economic and physical discrimination, so as to build a future based on respect, cooperation and solidarity among all members of humanity.
