Giving Peace to Our Planet
The Peace Hour is a large-scale action by the Peace 50 community. It gained a prolonged effect and received positive feedback from its participants. Women from different countries united to deliver their messages of peace and emphasize the acute need in switching to creative development strategies. Despite its title, the action went beyond one ‘peace hour’. It still keeps attracting the attention of people from all over the world.

On the International Day of Peace established by the UN, women from 20 countries met online to talk about the most important thing in every person’s life. Despite the fact that the action participants included representatives of different cultures, nationalities, and religions, their dialogue had a single language: the language of peace and deep mutual understanding.
“We are all very different and at the same time very alike. Love, the feeling living in every person’s heart, unites us. It may manifest itself differently depending on the person but we all dream about the same things: happiness, peace, and well-being”, emphasizes Marina Volynkina, co-founder of the Peace 50.
“The words of women at the action are not just beautiful phrases. Those are wise messages filled with sincere love. We proclaimed that the WORLD needs PEACE. Today, humanity has no other positive options for development”.
It is important for the Peace 50 community that its message of peace is heard by millions of people from all over the world and, of course, heads of states. That is why the action went beyond the format of the one-hour event.
The Global Women Media team and Peace 50 members prepared a video dedicated to the Peace Hour and launched a series of petitions in seven languages.
“It is important for us that as many people as possible join the action by signing the petition. We want every person to react to our message and understand that the future of the world depends on him or her”, says Marina Volynkina.
Maria Suvorova, one of the permanent experts of the Peace 50 community and founder of a translation agency, helped the Global Women Media translate the petition from Russian into English, Spanish, Chinese, German, French, and Turkish. All the documents are published at change.org with a goal to attract as many people as possible.
The messages voiced within the Peace Hour action are not just a request or a petition. They are the direct message that humanity must hear.
The Peace 50 community invites all people caring about the future of the planet to read and sign the petitions. To let you immerse in the action’s unforgettable atmosphere, we publish the video with the brightest reports of women from different countries.
