Peace One Day was founded as a non-profit making organisation by film maker Jeremy Gilley in 1999 to promote global peace. His feature-length documentary Peace One Day has played all over the world and has become a powerful tool in the awareness-raising process. The first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence was declared in 2001 and now takes place every year on September 21st.

Peace mission

Jeremy Gilley and Jude Law, actor and ambassador for Peace One Day, have just returned to Afghanistan, after a successful mission last year.

Following their visit, the Ministry of Public Health joined by UNICEF, the World Health Organization and local vaccinators used Peace Day to carry out a mass vaccination against polio of 1.4 million children. By returning to Afghanistan this year, Gilley and Law hope to continue raising awareness of Peace Day and stimulate further action on and around the Day.

Jude Law says, "The extraordinary events in Afghanistan around Peace Day last year set an important precedent. Jeremy and I are returning to the country this year to help keep the momentum going. As an ambassador for Peace One Day and as a filmmaker myself, I hope that my involvement will help the project to grow. I'm proud to be part of it."

Gala celebration

On September 21st, Annie Lennox, Bryan Adams, John Legend, Peter Gabriel and Jude Law will join forces for the Peace One Day Gala at the Royal Albert Hall. It will also be the gala screening of a new documentary by Jeremy Gilley. The film, which received a rapturous reception at its premiere during the 61st Cannes Film Festival, features Kofi Annan, The Dalai Lama, Angelina Jolie, Jude Law, Annie Lennox and Jonny Lee Miller.

Proceeds from the Peace One Day Celebration are earmarked to assist the non-profit organization's ongoing mission to raise awareness of Peace Day and manifest life saving activities on the Day. For further information on Peace One Day or to book tickets for the gala celebration, click here
