Who Will You Make Peace With?” is Peace One Day asking this year. Peace One Day is an NGO seeking to raise awareness of the International Day of Peace which was established in 1981 by United Nations General Assembly resolution 36/67 and occurs each year on September 21.

What if the answer would be “My colleague from the Foreign Affairs Committee” or “The opposition leader, because he does stand for a more peaceful world” or “The newly elected woman who is a proponent of equal rights”?

The Parliamentarians Network for Conflict Prevention (PN) has asked all its members to join the international efforts in strengthening the ideals of peace by inviting one parliamentarian to become a new member of the Parliamentarians Network for Conflict Prevention.

Friends of the Network and any person committed to peace are welcome to support our initiative, too. You may direct the MP you would like to invite to join PN to our website, forward our leaflet (that you can download here) to a potential member or send us a suggestion per e-mail with contact details so we can send a formal invitation. Please inform us no later than September 1 about your nominee so that we can measure our impact in time for the International Day of Peace!

Those Members of Parliament who want to take action in their constituency, with their political party or parliamentary committee should inform us so that we can promote their activities on our website or support them in case activities are organized in Brussels.

We can be reached at or at 0032 2 743 46 27.
