The International Day of Radiant Peace is celebrated annually on September 22, and is an excellent occasion to think about existing peace projects, take part in them, and spread the idea of Radiant Peace. Take a day to feel peace within yourself.
The holiday was founded by the informal, public organization Radiant Peace Foundation International, founded in 1986 in St. Petersburg, Florida. Initially it was celebrated on June 22, but the date was later moved to September 22. At first the event was held only in Florida, with support of the mayor of St. Petersburg, but gradually England, Ireland, and Romania joined, giving the holiday an international status.
- The holiday was started by the mayor of the city of St. Petersburg, David J. Fisher. He dreamed of seeing a world filled with light and peace and wanted to share this with the people around him.
- It was David J. Fisher who founded the Radiant Peace Foundation International, which later became a foundation whose members promote the ideas of peace.
- The Foundation has a museum, which contains interesting interactive exhibits, as well as original projects dedicated to world peace, created by people from different countries.
- The organization implements peace projects in many countries, attracting millions of people.
