International Peace Day

The International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) is observed around the world each year on September 21st. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution 36/37, the General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to “commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples.”

Children from around the world unite on this day to sing “Light a Candle for Peace” as did the entire student body of CMCS. Learn more about children engaging in this peaceful unification by visiting the SingPeaceAroundtheWorld website.

CMCS Director Dr. Nathalie Hunt explains why it’s important for her students to participate.
