The theme for this year's International Day of Peace is " Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All."
The theme honours the spirit of TOGETHER, a global initiative that promotes respect, safety and dignity for everyone forced to flee their homes in search of a better life. TOGETHER unites the organizations of the United Nations System, the 193 Member States of the United Nations, the private sector, civil society,
academic institutions and individual citizens in a global partnership in support of diversity, non-
discrimination and acceptance of refugees and migrants. It was initiated during the United Nations Summit
for Refugees and Migrants on 19 September 2016.
