UN Day for Living Together in Peace

On December 8, 2017, at its 72nd session, the United Nations General Assembly unanimously adopted Resolution 72/130 by a consensus of its 193 member states establishing ►May 16 as an annual "International Day of Living Together in Peace". It stressed that the “International Day of Living Together in Peace will be a means to regularly mobilize the efforts of the international community for peace, tolerance, inclusion, understanding, solidarity and an opportunity for all to express the deep desire to live and act together, united in difference and diversity, with a view to building a sustainable world based on peace, solidarity and harmony."
This idea came from Sheikh Khaled Bentounes, Honorary President of AISA International NGO, who initiated the Day.
