Annual Global Silent Minute

21 December 9 pm GMT

Join millions in the annual GLOBAL SILENT MINUTE on 21 December 2020 at 9pm GMT.*  You can participate wherever you are by simply ringing a bell and entering one minute of Silence. 

Or, join the CHALICE OF SILENCE Facebook Live Event from 8:45pm to 9:15pm GMT which will also be broadcast on the website

Last year millions around the world – and across the veil – participated in one Global Silent Minute– the exact same minute everywhere. Throughout 2020 the Global Silent Minute has become a daily practice. The annual Global Silent Minute will celebrate Humanity’s widespread engagement with the power of Silence to bring about global cooperation, peace and freedom.

The inspiration for the Silent Minute was born on a battlefield in World War I; launched in World War II and now participation in the Global Silent Minute addresses the myriad of “battlefields” around the globe to embed the culture of peace.
