Is it possible for humanity to have peace? To not have violent conflict, wars or violence in our homes, schools or online via cyberbullying? As you ponder this question, you might draw on your hopes, experience of human behaviour and possibly what you think is realistic – this is a show about risk and uncertainty after all.

Meet our latest guest, Jeremy Gilley. Jeremy is the founder of Peace One Day, a non-profit organisations whose objective is to institutionalise the International Day of Peace (September 21st each year). Jeremy is a documentary film maker, actor and he founded Peace One Day in 1999.

Peace One Day is an impressive organisation. In 2001, its efforts were rewarded when the UN General Assembly unanimously adopted the first day of global ceasefire and non-violence – Peace Day. In 2007, Peace One Day Ambassador Jude Law travelled to Afghanistan and met with the government, the UN, non-governmental organisations, paving the way for a day of ceasefire in Eastern Afghanistan. This allowed 10,000 volunteers to administer polio vaccines to 1.4 million children.

Peace One Day works with world leaders, major corporations and celebrities like Jude Law and its two other ambassadors Juliet Rylance, and Mike Posner, as well as Sir Michael Caine, Forest Whitaker, Akon, Michelle Rodriguez – the list goes on and on. In a few weeks, on Sept 21st, Peace One Day will celebrate its 20th anniversary.

While this conversation certainly covers the organisation Jeremy founded, it is deeper than that. It is a conversation about who we are as human beings – about our darkness, about why cynicism kills and about what we can do about that. It serves as a reminder that violence not only takes place in far flung places but that it also occurs in our homes, schools and communities. Listen with an open mind and heart. And, on September 21st ask yourself “with whom will I make peace?”
