World Peace Day: Underscoring importance of harmony in times of conflict

Furthermore, it is a day dedicated solely to promoting global solidarity for building a peaceful and sustainable world. Apart from living in harmony, this day also tries to remind people and nations to think about the importance of universal peace.

In recent times there has been an increase in discrimination, hatred and stigma around the world which has led to the loss of more lives than to save them. So as the world recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, this day gives us an opportunity to think creatively and collectively about how to help everyone heal better, how to build resilience, and help the world become one. How to convert equal, more. Equitable, inclusive, sustainable and healthy.

In addition, it should not be forgotten that people should also make peace with nature, while strengthening the harmony between countries. This is because climate change has not stopped and the need of the hour is to build a green and sustainable global economy that creates jobs, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and builds resilience to ever-increasing climate impacts.
