International Day of Peace will be observed today in Bangladesh and elsewhere across the globe to celebrate the power of global solidarity for building a peaceful and sustainable world.
The day also recognises the efforts of those who worked hard to end the conflicts and promote peace in the world.
The theme of this year’s International Day of Peace is, “Recovering Better for an Equitable and Sustainable World”.
Encouraging people to stay focused on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the website of UN reads, “This year, it has been clearer than ever that we are not each other’s enemies. Rather, our common enemy is a tireless virus that threatens our health, security and very way of life. COVID-19 has thrown our world into turmoil and forcibly reminded us that what happens in one part of the planet can impact people everywhere.”
