International peace day was established by UN General Assembly in1981 to strengthen the ideas of peace within and among all nations and people. The UN urges all nations and populations to respect a cessation of hostilities during this day and to mark it through the information and public awareness activities on peace issues. Peace day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to peace above all differences and to contribute to building a culture of peace.
To commemorate Inter Peace Day, the CSR Department at DSU, put up an interactive art installation (a golden wish tree) and engaged students in a week long activity to celebrate International Peace Day from 24th-28th September 2018. The objective of this activity was that by the end, students introspect on how to become a better/peace loving citizens and inspire each other.
