Over the past 75 years, more than two million UN peacekeepers have helped countries navigate the difficult path from war to peace. We are ordinary people striving to overcome enormous challenges to build peace. We are not alone in the pursuit of peace. We work alongside partners globally, and in the countries we serve. The legacy of our peacekeepers, past and present, and the resilience of the communities we work with, inspires us all to take action in the knowledge that #PeaceBeginsWithMe.
The United Nations Peacekeeping Mission in Cyprus will be creating an Inside Out action to bring together participants from both communities on the island, to gather for a day to discuss together some of the joint challenges to peace in Cyprus and how to address them together.
The community event serves to highlight the partnerships between peacekeeping and communities on the occasion of UN Peacekeepers’ Day, usually marked on 29 May but will be celebrated either on Saturday 27 or Sunday 28 May to ensure a broader and more diverse audience can attend.
The portraits are slated to be glued on the Ledra Palace Crossing. The event can be an occasion to also involve local artists, including street artists, Youth Champions, women, young leaders and business entrepreneurs to help put up the portraits and provide an occasion for a discussion on the power of artvocacy for peace and the history of street art in their island.
