Back to WMD-We Must Disarm

Tell us what YOU are doing for peace!

Dear Members,

Thank you for your loyal and continued support for the United Nations’ “WMD-We Must Disarm” campaign.

We truly appreciate your backing for that campaign and would like to now channel your passion and commitment to support another United Nations’ priority – the celebration of this year’s International Day of Peace and its theme "Youth for Development and Peace". The Day, 21 September, is just a few weeks away.

This year, the Day connects the Summit on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) (http://www.un.org/en/mdg/summit2010/), that takes place at the same time at the UN Headquarters, with the International Year of Youth (http://social.un.org/youthyear/).

Find, 'like' and get involved on our new Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/unpeaceday ! There, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon begins by telling us what he is doing for peace. Then he calls on young people around the world to take a stand and asks: What are YOU doing for peace?

Check it out and tell YOUR story about YOUR contributions to peace -- no matter how big or how small. Share YOUR texts, photos, videos and comments with us!

Get involved, have some fun and make a real difference!

Thanks and all the best,

The WMD-We Must Disarm team
