St John’s Cathedral, 373 Ann St, Brisbane

The University of Queensland has partnered with the United Nations Association of Australia 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 Tuesday 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 76th 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. Rear Admiral (ret) Chris Barrie will deliver the keynote address with an introduction by Major (ret) Cameron Leckie.  

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, University of Queensland, Griffith Uni and WILPF.
