“On the occasion of 11 Days of Global Unity, culminating on the International Day of Peace, we invite you to join us in a movement without which all the other movements for change cannot be successful. The crucial movement we are talking about is the shift from ‘I’ to ‘WE’.”
– Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu

“It’s time for us to realize that we are a part of all the suffering in the world – those who are hungry and starving, all those animals that face extinction. Then we begin to make the change& from ‘I’ to ‘WE’. Because it’s when we all get together that we will make the changes we must make.” – UN Messenger of Peace Jane Goodall
Anwarul Chowdhury
“The 11 Days of Global Unity aims at strengthening the ideals of unity and equality, diversity and oneness, harmony and compassion and, above all, at advancing the culture of peace. I welcome this remarkable initiative.” –  Former Under-Secretary-General and  High Representative of the UN Ambassador Anwarul K. Chowdhury
