Living together in harmony
24 May 2018 | International
The first commemoration of International Day for Living Together in Peace took place at the United Nations (UN) House in Klein Windhoek and was held in collaboration with government and the embassy of Algeria. The day recognises the need to promote peace, tolerance, inclusion, understanding and solidarity. It also promotes reconciliation to help ensure peace and sustainable development.
The International Day for Living Together in Peace promotes peace amongst all nations and was adopted by UN General Assembly on 8 December 2017.
The ambassador of Algeria to Namibia, Sid Ali Abdelbari, highlighted the importance of the day's resolution, which was tabled by his country.
“We need to ensure social justice and the fair share of prosperity across the socio-economic aspects of society, which is one of the key elements to make peace prevail.”
