NEWS: 1) Peace Day 2010 Broadcast Event: Building on the success of the first ever UN PEACE DAY GLOBAL INTERNET BROADCAST in 2009, which saw more than 2 million viewers, we are proud to announce the PEACE DAY 2010 event. Let us know if you'd like to participate, e-mail me here or call 541-306-6467.
Established by U.N. resolution in 1982, "Peace Day" has grown to include millions of people around the world who participate in all kinds of events, large and small. Since it's inception, the International Day of Peace has been a focal point for Peacebuilding organizations to showcase, educate and advocate on behalf of the solutions they offer. Over the years, September 21st, Peace Day, has become an uniquely inter-generational and inter-community event, engaging all sectors of society including: governments, faith groups, non-profits, universities, businesses & Non-governmental organizations.
In the past few years, it’s been a day of global ceasefire, which has had a tremendous impact on millions of children, especially in Afghanistan, who’ve been immunized from polio and had food delivered on this day. As the world becomes increasingly interconnected through technology, Peace Day is being frequently adopted as a day to unite on the most urgent issues of our time: climate change, the environment, hunger & poverty, social justice, & human rights. The Peace Day Broadcast is a means for further connecting these groups and educating people from around the world.
In 2009 the global broadcast was twelve hours long, focusing on the activities of Peacebuilding groups, corporations, and individuals from around the globe working to achieve the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. The broadcast was aired with live studio controls three times consecutively starting at the International date line and continues to play on a 12 hour loop over multiple websites such as www.peaceday2009.org to this day. This years event will also play continuously after the live broadcast event is recorded. The event player can be embedded on websites, social networks such as Facebook, and other digital medium channels.
This year's event is scheduled to be twenty-four hours long, it will contain live feeds from celebrations around the world, pre-produced segments featuring Peacebuilding partners and sponsors, entertainment, Youth Peace Ambassador interviews such as last years with Michael Franti and Joan Baez, and feature new technologies designed for improving all sectors of our society.
There are several different levels at which you can participate in supporting the Broadcast. Each level offers excellent exposure and promotional opportunities for your organization.
