International Day of Peace #CaturdayArt

Happy International Day of Peace!



#PeaceDay

"The International Day of Peace is observed around the world each year on 21 September. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace." - https://internationaldayofpeace.org/

#ClimateAction

This year's Peace Day theme is about taking action to help combat climate change "as a way to protect and promote peace throughout the world."



"Climate change causes clear threats to international peace and security. Natural disasters displace three times as many people as conflicts, forcing millions to leave their homes and seek safety elsewhere. The salinization of water and crops is endangering food security, and the impact on public health is escalating. The growing tensions over resources and mass movements of people are affecting every country on every continent.

In the lead up to the International Day of Peace on 21 September, the United Nations calls upon all to take action to tackle climate change. Every human is part of the solution - from turning off the lights to taking public transport, to organizing an awareness raising campaign in your community. Share your ideas and activities with us through #PeaceDay and #ClimateAction. - https://www.un.org/en/events/peaceday/

I hope that we can make some strides on climate change, it is terrible what we are doing to this planet!

TW is so proud that there were over 4 million at the Climate Change rallies. Greta Thunberg is making a difference by reaching young people like herself.

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Politicians, celebs and some members of the royal family need to stop just talking about it and doing something positive before it is too late.

We need visible climate change action.

Did you know there were no wood burning fires for decades in England until some trendy imbecile said they were cool. Now the UK's pollution is climbing again,

Summer said...

This is such an important cause!

Little Binky and Granny said...

Pawkisses for a Happy Caturday🐾😽💞

That's so important, and everyone can make the difference with some changes. Purrs

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

We have had the oddest weather, we just purr that the wildlife can adapt, and that the humans will stop mucking our climate up.

Brian said...

That's very pretty sweet Athena! The first step on climate change gotta be stopping the flatulence from the politicians!

Beautiful Athena, I didn't know what today was, thanks for celebrating and bringing me in on such a great day.

Sending peaceful vibrations to all sentient beings on this International Day of Peace. Let's all work together to make our lives and communities more peaceful.

our moronic President doesn't understand that climate change is REAL. Athena, maybe YOU can enlighten him? Good luck with that. No one can get through his thick, orange skull.

Eastside Cats said...

We all have a role in creating peace, which means having purring cats in our lives!

Beautiful art, Athena!

Thank you for the reminder of this important day/cause. XO

The Island Cats said...

It makes us sad that our government leaders believe there is no global warming or climate change.

Kitties Blue said...

You are as beautiful as ever, Athena. We did not know about this day. Thanks for sharing. Our President is such an idiot, not believing in Climate Change, as evidenced by what he just did in California and is wanting the U.S. to start producing more coal. At least the rest of the world recognizes the problem. Mom says that she is certain she will not see peace in her lifetime, but she continues to pray for it.

These are such important days and causes, Athena and Mum. We need more peace, and we need to care of our planet. It's the only one we've got. XO

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

Thank you for your comments, everyone.

Caren & Cody - you made us LOL and MOL with your "thick orange skull" comment. I doubt that even a wise kitty goddess can enlighten that old fool. He is so old school - like a certain uncle of Mum's who upset her the other week. The less said about that, the better.

Yeah, Trump, as well as other world leaders, is in denial. Absolute disgrace :(

It just took one young girl from Sweden striking all alone a year ago and look what she's achieved in such a short time. What have these leaders ever done for anyone? Power, money, greed, war. That's all they are interested in.

We don't do politics but when something is wrong Mum and I will speak up.

Peace and love for the planet equals peace and love to every being :) xx
