Set For Peace
DJ'S UNITING INTERNATIONALLY TO RAISE AWARENESS FOR PEACE
By Last Night a DJ Saved My Life Foundation
21st September 2013
Peace One Day has partnered with the Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Foundation (LNADJ) to launch an exciting new initiative for Peace Day, Set for Peace.
Peace One Day and LNADJ are calling for DJs and promoters around the world to celebrate Peace Day -- Saturday 21 September 2013. DJs have been asked to play a 'set' in the name of peace and promoters will be asked to dedicate their event to Peace Day. Our vision is to hear the DJs of the world, from conflict zones to nightclubs, to the front rooms of our homes, playing a 'Set for Peace', raising awareness of Peace Day.
With DJ's from over 52 countries already registered to take part in this initiative it is certainly showing that dance music can make a difference.
Paul Van Dyk is this year's leading ambassador and is DJing a Set For Peace at the flagship Peace One Day event at the Peace Palace in Den Hague celebrating 100yrs of the Palace.
Fundraising and donations from sets or events are optional.

How does raising awareness help?
Through detailed analysis conducted with the support of McKinsey & Company, the Peace One Day 2012 report found that, across the world, approximately 280 million people in 198 countries were aware of Peace Day 2012 -- 4% of the world's population. The report further estimates that approximately 2% of those people (5.6 million) behaved more peacefully as a result. As a result of Set for Peace & other initiatives, Peace One Day expect their message to reach over 600 million people in 2013.
Peace One Day
In 1999, Jeremy Gilley founded Peace One Day, a non-profit organisation, and 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 21 September -- Peace Day.
Peace One Day's objective is to institutionalise Peace Day 21 September, making it a day that is self-sustaining, an annual day of global unity, a day of intercultural
