The aim of the 100 Days of Peace initiative is to promote one hundred days of peace-making in schools, parishes and communities for fifty days either side of the Games. We call on all nations to fulfil the commitments of the UN Resolution and enable a peaceful Games to be enjoyed around the world.
Our dream is that the London 2012 Games will leave a lasting legacy of peace towards greater safety on our streets, co-operation between nations and an end to war.
Once in every four years the Olympic and Paralympic Games offer an opportunity to celebrate human achievement through sport. Every country in the world is invited to send participants.
This unique international event is accompanied by an equally important UN resolution, signed by all 193 member states, calling for a cessation of conflict during the period of the Games.
