Julia Jackson, Founder of Grounded said: "We are inundated with messages that it is “game over” for our civilization and it’s hard not to get stuck in the doom-and-gloom. However, there are hundreds of viable solutions that can mitigate the worst impacts of our climate emergency. Climate Action Live is a day to manifest climate action around the world, focused on real action that the global community can take. The time is now; join us June 21st to act to protect the Earth.”
Emmanuel Jal, Musician, Actor, Activist said: “I’ve been working with Peace One Day for many years now collaborating to raise awareness of Peace Day 21 September. I’m proud to be performing and participating this year in Climate Action Live 21 June. Don’t miss it, please tune in.”
Michael Mapes, CEO Trivium Packaging said: “Peace One Day has the ability to bring powerful voices from business, governments, and activist groups to the table. That’s exactly what we need to move the needle on climate action. The climate crisis is not for others to solve. It’s down to our common action, and Trivium Packaging is joining forces with Peace One Day on June 21 to be part of the solution.”
Rik Daems, President of the Network of Contact Parliamentarians for a Healthy Environment, Parliamentary Assembly, Council of Europe said: “A safe, clean, healthy and sustainable environment IS a basic human right.”

ABOUT PEACE ONE DAY
Filmmaker Jeremy Gilley founded Peace One Day in 1999 to establish an annual Peace Day with a fixed calendar date and document the process. In 2001 Peace One Day’s efforts were rewarded when the member states of the United Nations unanimously adopted the first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on the UN International Day of Peace, fixed in the calendar as 21 September – Peace Day. Peace One Day’s overarching objective is to ensure that people are aware of the day and engage all sectors of society in the day’s peaceful observance and celebration.
As well as leading a number of high-profile Peace Day campaigns in sport, education, the environment, and within the corporate sector, Peace One Day has produced 14 major broadcast celebrations, including performances by Sir Elton John, Akon, Annie Lennox, Lenny Kravitz, Youssou N’Dour, Yusuf Islam, Peter Gabriel, Patti Smith, Bryan Adams, John Legend, Dave Stewart, Jimmy Cliff and many others.
