#HandofPeace campaign

International Alert has launched a #HandofPeace campaign to spread a message of collaboration and unity this month around the International Day of Peace on 21 September.

The campaign invites you to join hands with someone, whether it be with a friend, foe, partner or stranger, and share a selfie with us on social media.

We believe everyone can play a part in supporting peace, every day. This has been our focus for the past thirty years, and it’s what’s driven us to work alongside and bring together local communities, governments and businesses in conflict areas around the world.

Through the #HandofPeace campaign we are asking you to play a part and spread this message by sharing your own collaborative gesture, and show that peace is within our power.

How can I get involved?

Join the campaign and help us rise above stories of violence that dominate the headlines by:

  • Joining hands with someone and tweet this selfie to your Twitter, Facebook or Instagram page using the hashtag #HandofPeace - and why not nominate others you’d like to see join hands!
  • Spreading the word on social media by sharing this image on Twitter or Facebook.
  • Visiting our free #HandofPeace photo booth at House of Vans London, which will be open throughout our Talking Peace Festival (21 September – 2 October).

Please tag us too so we can share your selfie:
