Actor, Filmmaker and Founder of Peace One Day

Jeremy GilleyJeremy Gilley had a successful career as an actor and documentary film maker. He went on to found the non-profit project Peace One Day. His big idea was to establish one day every year where every single warring nation would lay down its arms. An annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence.

“Settling an old rivalry is one way to make #peace”


In detail

Following Jeremy’s campaign to establish this annual day of non-violence and global ceasefire, a General Assembly resolution was unanimously adopted by UN member states in September 2001, and it formally established 21st September as the UN International Day of Peace. The main objective is to make Peace Day self-sustaining.Peace One Day campaigns in education, music, film, sport, dance and over the internet. Since it was established, millions of people globally have been able to carry out important work in areas of conflict. As an example, Jeremy and Peace One Day ambassador actor Jude Law spearheaded a campaign in Afghanistan that resulted in providing polio vaccination to 4.5 million children who otherwise would have been unreachable because of the war raging there.
