The International Day of Living in Peace is observed annually around the world on 16 May. The Day aims to uphold the desire to live and act together, united in differences and diversity, to build a sustainable world of peace, solidarity, and harmony. The Day offers an opportunity to reflect on accepting differences and listening, recognizing, respecting, and appreciating others.
The UN General Assembly (UNGA), in Resolution 72/130, declared 16 May the International Day of Living Together in Peace, as a means of regularly mobilizing the efforts of the international community to promote peace, tolerance, inclusion, understanding, and solidarity.
