Peace Begins With Me: 75 years of UN Peacekeeping

Peacekeepers are ordinary people, working in dangerous and strenuous conditions to achieve extraordinary outcomes. They help prevent conflict, protect civilians, advance political solutions, and support democratic processes. Despite the challenges, peacekeepers persevere, alongside many partners, in the collective pursuit of peace. UN Peacekeeping’s Peace Begin With Me campaign thanks peacekeepers, past and present, for their service and sacrifice, and showcases the impact of peacekeepers and peace-makers who strive against all odds to build lasting peace. Their stories inspire us all to take action in the knowledge that “peace begins with me”.
