Interview & her broadcasting from Poland
Peace Ambassador Princess Angelika Jarosławska Sapieha had an honor to be a speaker during the Peace One Day Live and organize a first-ever broadcasting from Poland on the International Day of Peace.
Due to the Peace One Day’s efforts, a General Assembly resolution was unanimously adopted by UN member states, establishing 21 September as an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on the UN International Day of Peace – Peace Day.
Peace Day Live connected thought leaders, actors, and musicians to raise awareness of Peace Day, 21 September, and manifest action towards a more peaceful and sustainable world on a global scale.
Throughout the years, millions of people have been active on Peace Day in every country of the world, and hundreds of organizations have carried out life-saving activities in areas of conflict.
During the broadcasting, special guests gave their speeches. Among them, there was a Hero from the II WW Mr. Juliusz Kulesza pseudonym “Julek”, a Veteran of the Warsaw Uprising. Who understands the value of peace better than those who experience war as young people?
There was also a concert by the music band Yarova, who created a special song “No War”.
In the studio, there were also Polish and Ukrainian children and students from 2 to 16 years old. There was also a presentation of the paintings of children from all over the world, especially Ukraine, created in the frames of the contest “Children Painting Peace on Earth”.
