Sustainability Requires Peace

September 21 is the International Day of Peace

"Each year, on this day, the United Nations calls for a global ceasefire. We ask combatants to put down their arms so all can breathe the air of peace. Armed conflict causes untold grief to families, communities and entire countries. Let us stand with them in solidarity. Peace and security are essential foundations for social progress and sustainable development.

Let us all observe a minute of silence, at noon. Let us all reflect on peace - and what it means for our human family. Let us hold it in our hearts and minds and tenderly nurture it so it may grow and blossom."

- Ban ki-moon, Secretary General of the United Nations
