September 21 is the International Day of Peace, proclaimed by the UN. This day UWC movement celebrates UWC day when we try to increase the number of people who are aware of various problems of the modern world. This year’s theme is “United we can”.

For the third year this day, we have run a webinar-marathon with people who are role models and reflect the theme of the year in their activities.

Divisiveness, tension, and walls have been building around the world over the last few years. In some respects, it feels as if UWC’s goal of uniting people, nations and cultures through education is moving further away. Yet the global crises we face – whether the current health crisis or the longer-term climate crisis – make that same mission more urgent than ever.

Our community of bridge-builders know that the scale of these challenges can only be surmounted when we turn towards rather than against each other. Because #UnitedWeCan overcome the isolation many currently feel. #UnitedWeCan solve climate issues, inequalities and conflict. It’s the only way.
