International Day of Peace observances
21 September, New Zealand

Wanganui, 2005

On International Day of Peace in 2005, a group gathered at the Peace Sculpture in the centre of the city of Wanganui, beneath the Culture of Peace Banner, to participate in a moment of silence as a contribution to the global International Day of Peace Vigil.

People throughout the world are today participating in a silent Peace Vigil, beginning at Noon local time.
We will be joining this stream of thoughts and prayers, empowering the work for a just and peaceful world.
The banner of peace here is carrying the 6 pledges made to date by more than 75 million people from all countries.
Let us remember these as we enter our moment of silence.
