JEREMY GILLEY

After a successful career acting in film and television, Jeremy began making films in 1995 and in 1999 founded the non-profit organisation Peace One Day to document his efforts to establish the first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence with a fixed date. In September 2001, as a result of Jeremy’s efforts, a General Assembly resolution was unanimously adopted by UN member states, establishing 21 September as an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on the UN International Day of Peace – Peace Day. In 2016 it is estimated that 2.2 billion people were exposed to the Peace Day message and 940 million were fully aware of the day, resulting in around 16 million behaving more peacefully (McKinsey & Co).
