Dear Alina,



I hope you are well.

I am reaching out to thank you for Arta Zalmoxa’s involvement and participation in the Partnership for Peace Coalition. The number of members has almost doubled to 170 since 2018 and we want to keep growing this peace network. For continuous support of each other, attached you can find the list of our current active members.

Our 20th Anniversary Celebration was a great success, and I wanted to show you the results of everyone's effort to institutionalise Peace Day - the core mission of our work. Please find attached the report carried out independently by Digitalis, Social 360 and Signal AI showing the level of exposure generated on the day. It is astonishing!

As we embark on the journey to making 3 billion people aware by 2025, I am sure you will agree, that this is a great starting point to exposing a significant number of people to the message of peace. Awareness of Peace Day manifests behavioural change, and that change reduces violence.

Thank you so much for your continuous support of Peace One Day and for making the Partnership for Peace Coalition stronger. Let’s bring the peace message into 2020 together.

Warm regards,

In Peace

Jeremy Gilley

Founder, Peace One Day

1. Summary
This report contains key metrics from the monitoring of the Peace One Day (POD) campaign. It is split
into two sections: Volumetrics and Sentiment which is concerned primarily with traditional news media
and the statistics around the global reach; and Social Media Coverage which is concerned with social
media activity primarily focused on Twitter and the prominent examples of individuals / organisations
reached by the campaign.
The key findings are:
- POD this year occurred one day after the Global Climate Strike. The UN adopted the theme for
this years’ Peace Day as climate action, was appeared to have been broadly accepted as the
main theme for the day. This resulted in a large amount of peace related social media posts
focusing in on climate change issues.
- As previously mentioned, the potential audience of those exposed to the POD campaign was
over 2 billion individuals (full details below in Section 2), according to Signal-AI data.
- Coverage of “Peace Day” itself is high, with global social media reusing the hashtag #peaceday.
Among notable online commentators were the US comedian Ellen DeGeneres (78.6m+
followers, 2.1k+ retweets/likes) and UNESCO (3m+ followers).
- On 21 Sep 19, the hashtag #Peaceday was circulated between 18-19 million users at midday,
representing 13 per cent of the 139 million active users on Twitter a day. At its height, the
hashtag #Peaceday was tweeted 20 times per minute, according to Social360 data.
- Peace One Day itself gained overwhelmingly positive global coverage. Sources commenting on
the event range from Members of Parliament, prominent actors and musicians, governmental
and non-governmental organisations, and national news agencies. All findings detailed below
in Section 3.
- The hashtag #cybernonviolence saw a good amount of engagement too, with key promoters
including: the Australian e-Safety Office (14.5k+ followers), the charity Childnet (56.8k+
followers), Liberal Democrat MP Normal Lamb (47.7k+ followers, 20+ retweets/likes) and
others (see Section 3 for further details).
- On 21 Sep 19, the POD website was visited by 1,300 unique users from 116 countries across
the globe, representing 60.1% of UN-recognised countries in the world.

2. Volumetrics and Sentiment
2.1. Sentiment
The following sentiment analysis provides metrics regarding the tone of the articles published for POD;
these are based on Signal-AIs software are provide an indication of tone only. More than 72% of the
articles mentioning Peace One Day from September 1st to September 26th are positive. Out of the
3865 articles published during September 2796 were carrying positive sentiment (see Fig.1).
Fig.1
There were 32 negative mentions, however, these are due to misinterpretations of the sentiment
analysis software and thus should not be considered (see Fig.2). 26.8% of the articles were neutral.

2.2. Reach
The biggest spike of coverage was during the day of the event, with 878 articles worldwide. During
that day the articles published potentially reached over 2 billion people around the globe (see Fig.3).
Fig.3
This means that potentially the news about Peace One Day and the International Day of Peace reached
around Ľ of the global population. If we compare this number (2 billion potential readers) with the
global population that has access to the internet (3.2 billion according to an estimation of International
Telecommunication Union from 2015), it becomes obvious that 2 out of 3 humans with access to
internet potentially read something on Peace One Day and International Day of Peace. Below a list with
the countries with the most coverage during the POD event on 21 Sep 19 (see Fig.4).

4. Climate Action Engagement
This year, Peace One Day occurred one day after the start of the Global Climate Strike, consisting of
major climate demonstrations and protests held worldwide over the course of one week, led by Greta
Thunberg and school students.
According to the event’s website, 7.6 million people took part in the protests across 185 countries.1
The UN backed the event, reporting that this year’s theme for Peace Day was climate action.2 The UN
Secretary General, António Guterres, made a speech to 700 school students, emphasising climate
change as a threat to peace, on 20 September in New York.3
As a likely result of the timing of the Global Climate Strike and the UN’s affirmation that the theme for
their Peace Day was climate action, this appears to have broadly been interpreted as the clearest
theme for Peace Day, and the majority of social media posts we saw by groups and individuals alluding
to a peace day theme mentioned tended to reference climate change, rather than cyber non-violence.
