Sigaw ng Kabataan Coalition Celebrates Peace Day and Peace Consciousness Month Through PIYC 2018

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Sigaw ng Kabataan Coalition is one with the world and all its youth in celebrating the International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”), commemorated globally every year on 21 September, as well as the National Peace Consciousness Month in the Philippines with the theme, “Mithiing Kapayapaan: Sama-samang Isakatuparan.”

SKC is a national alliance of youth leaders and a consortium of youth organizations in the Philippines firmly believing that peacebuilding is among the strong foundations of sustainable development in the country. This would require the key role of the youth in securing peace and inclusiveness amidst diversity in all regions, supporting the Sustainable Development Goal 16: Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

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. On the other hand, the Philippine celebration of the month of September as National Peace Consciousness Month calls for a unified action towards the shared aspiration for a just, comprehensive, and enduring peace regardless of ideology, religion, and culture. The carrier tagline of this year’s Peace Month is “Peace Na Tayo,” a simple way to communicate the theme’s call for a participative pursuit for peace.

To showcase its strong commitment to peacebuilding and unity towards development, the SKC together with the Rotary Satellite Club of Fort Bonifacio Global City Titans will hold the Philippine Intercultural Youth Convention 2018 on 22-23 September at the Great Eastern Hotel in Quezon City. This convention gathers Filipino youth around the country to unite and embrace the diversity of Philippine cultures, faith, and languages, while discussing with government officials and key experts on the significant contribution of the youth in Philippine development.

"Through the Philippine Intercultural Youth Convention 2018, we celebrate peace with the world and with the country as one youth community that is recipient of peace building efforts of generations before us, and responsible to the next generations that deserve a future with inclusive peace and development."  said Ellirie Aviles, SKC National President and Chiarman of Rotary Satellite Club of Fort Bonifacio Global City Titans.
