Sep 21 Thu
International Day of Peace
Sep 21 all-day
The International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) is observed around the world each year on 21 September. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution 36/37, the General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to“commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples.” 
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. This is a special day for Soroptimists around the world.  Use the hastag #peaceday for your messages of goodwill.

The 2017 conference will be held in Cardiff at the iconic Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay.

Cardiff Bay offers lots of things to do – eateries, bars, boat trips and cultural attractions; and you are only a short distance from Cardiff City Centre which offers a fantastic shopping experience so come early and make the most of your stay in Wales.

The conference theme, Step Up, Lead the Way was chosen to encourage all of us to lead the way in terms of growing our organisation and securing its future.


Join us for this unique once-a-year event as hundreds of members come together to share experiences, get inspired and celebrate what being a Soroptimist really means.
