A blossoming lotus holds aloft the entire weight of the earth. This striking logo belongs to the Peace One Day organization, an initiative that aims to promote peace globally through campaigns and events. September 21, 2012 was chosen to host Peace One Day events around the world. The day is also recognized by the United Nations as a day of non-violence and ceasefire.
The charity foundation was established in 1998 by Jeremy Gilley. Since then, the number of people involved in the project has increased exponentially, with a reported 100 million involved by 2007.
In 2012, Kuwait was also part of this community initiative for the very first time. The core committee comprised of Amira Behbehani, Shurooq Amin, Basil Al-Hadi, Dalia Al-Hadi, Shadi Al-Hadi, Sheikha Nafisi and Reza Azkavan. The event, held at Contemporary Art Platform (CAP) in Shuwaikh was a resounding success with attendance in large numbers.
