Ultimately, the priority is to help secure political agreements and build sustainable peace, as peacekeepers patrol by land, air and water to deter violence and create a safe space for dialogue. Chief of Strategic Communications for UN Peacekeeping Francesca Mold explains how it all happens.
For 75 years, UN peacekeeping has made a tangible difference in the lives of millions of people caught up in catastrophic conflict. Peacekeepers are ordinary people, working in dangerous and strenuous conditions to achieve extraordinary outcomes. They help prevent conflict, protect civilians, advance political solutions, and support democratic processes. Despite the challenges, peacekeepers persevere, alongside many partners, in the collective pursuit of peace. UN Peacekeeping's Peace Begin With Me campaign thanks peacekeepers, past and present, for their service and sacrifice, and showcases the impact of peacekeepers and peace-makers who strive against all odds to build lasting peace. Their stories inspire us all to take action in the knowledge that "peace begins with me".
