Every year, on September 21st, we come together to commemorate the International Day of Peace, a momentous occasion dedicated to fostering a world free from conflict, violence, and strife. This day is a powerful reminder that amid the chaos and challenges our world faces, peace remains an enduring aspiration for humanity.

This year’s theme is Actions for Peace: Our Ambition for the #GlobalGoals. It underscores the importance of working collectively to rebuild our communities, societies, and the planet itself with justice, equity, and sustainability at the forefront.  Fostering peace contributes to the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals will create a culture of peace for all. 

Sustainability holds a central position in the core values of International Towers. We are thrilled to announce the return of  CandleXchange for yet another candle pouring workshop, marking a significant occasion dedicated to sustainability.  To learn more about CandleXchange's dedication to sustainable practices, visit their website for additional information.
