PeaceQuest is a community-wide celebration in the Greater Lansing area held every September to celebrate the United Nations International Day of Peace, which was declared by the UN General Assembly with a resolution passed unanimously in 1981. PeaceQuest brings us ALL together for fun and interesting activities with friends, family, and community while focusing on ways we can promote peace, resolve conflicts, learn about other faiths and cultures, and encourage mutual understanding.

PeaceQuest is coordinated by Greater Lansing United Nations Association in partnership with many community organizations and sponsors. 

To our partner organizations: As with many other community activities these days, we believe most organizations will be able to put together a safe event for PeaceQuest 2023. We would like to hear from you about your plans.

In 2015 the 193 nation-states of the United Nations identified the Global Goals, also known as the Sustainable Development Goals, to be reached by 2030.  We believe that there will be greater peace in our world as these goals are met.   As you will see, the events on our PeaceQuest calendar reflect the goals.


Is your organization interested in becoming part of PeaceQuest 2023?  It’s never too early or too late to plan to become a sponsor, offer an event, and more!  Email us at peacequestlansing@gmail.com
