9th INTERNATIONAL PEACE LIGHTING DAY

In the midst of global political chaos, heighten religious extremism, widening socioeconomic gaps, increasing hateful violence, persistent domestic abuses, and growing youth participations to gang activities and violent lifestyles, comes the interrupter, the Peace Month. 

Since the inception of Peace December concept nine years ago, twenty two nations and growing have adopted December as the Peace Month and November 30th as International Peace Lighting Day. We know that hate and violence aren’t inevitable!

Observing one month of peace in the year is not enough but all journeys start with a first step. 
For this reason, we cordially invite you to join the annual lighting of 193 peace candles representing each member of the United Nations, followed by our collective commitment to observe December as the Peace Month. Thank you. 

Our motto: Love is natural. Hate is learned. Peaceful Coexistence must be universal.
