The University of Queensland has partnered with the United Nations Association of Australia, Griffith University and several other peace organisations to celebrate this year’s International Day of Peace (IDOP).

Taking place at St John’s Cathedral in Brisbane’s CBD on Monday 21 September, this free event promises a much-needed antidote to the daily newsfeed of war and human tragedy.

Launched in 1981 as a United Nations resolution, IDOP marks a date when all of humanity can commit to overcoming their differences and build a culture of peace.

In the 75th year of the United Nations, formed after 60 million people died in WW2, the International Day of Peace will be held both virtually and limited in person, at Brisbane's St John's Cathedral. Gillian Triggs will deliver the keynote address with an introduction by Dr Tilman Ruff, ICAN board member. Gillian has been appointed Assistant Secretary-General and Assistant High Commissioner for Protection.

IDOP promises to be an uplifting night in Brisbane’s social calendar.

This is a free public event supported by UNAA Queensland, St John’s Cathedral, Just Peace, Rotary, Griffith Uni, UQ, and WILPF.
