It is the International Day of Living Together in Peace – a lifestyle choice we need to embrace 365 days a year.

This doesn’t speak to a sector, country or age group. It is a mindset for all – that can help deliver a sustainable future for all.

“Living together in peace is all about accepting differences and having the ability to listen to, recognise, respect and appreciate others, as well as living in a peaceful and united way,” the UN says. “The UN General-Assembly, in its resolution 72/130, declared 16 May the International Day of Living Together in Peace, as a means of regularly mobilising the efforts of the international community to promote peace, tolerance, inclusion, understanding and solidarity. The Day aims to uphold the desire to live and act together, united in differences and diversity, in order to build a sustainable world of peace, solidarity and harmony.”
