The International Day of Non-Violence is marked on 2 October, the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, leader of the Indian independence movement and pioneer of the philosophy and strategy of non-violence.


In 2007 United Nations General Assembly established the commemoration, the International Day is an occasion to “disseminate the message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness”. The resolution reaffirms “the universal relevance of the principle of non-violence” and the desire “to secure a culture of peace, tolerance, understanding and non-violence”.


Many people, governments, and non-government organizations around the world observe the International Day of Non-Violence through various events and activities such as:


* News articles and broadcast announcements promoting the day.


* Public lectures, seminars, discussions, and press conferences about non-violence.


* Photo exhibitions highlighting issues, such as the dangers of the illicit trade of small arms.


* Street awareness campaigns.


* Light ceremonies promoting non-violence and peace.


* Multi-faith prayer meetings.


The International Day of Non-Violence has strong connections with the works, beliefs, and methods of peace leader Mahatma Gandhi, who is known as India’s “Father of the Nation”.
