World Unity Week

World Unity WeekWorld UNITY Week is a stop along the road and a “birthing space” for a larger-scale global celebration across Peace Weekend 2020 (September 19-21), centred on the annual U.N. International Day of Peace (September 21). World Unity Week is a celebration of interfaith harmony, appreciation of the Earth’s gifts and resources, and promotion of Open Space for dialogue and exchange.

World UNITY Week is a 8-day celebration of our global unity, beginning with the mid year solstice and winding towards the celebrations of the UN 75th anniversary. Key events include the UN International Day of Yoga, the launch of Purpose Earth and 5 days of “open space” offerings. Key conversations during World UNITY Week will spotlight topics as: collective climate action, partnerships for peace, global governance, interfaith harmony, sustainable and regenerative development, the role of business and economics, human rights, disarmament and other key elements of a new kind of future that we want to create.
