FIJI will join the world in commemorating International Day of Peace on September 21 with a peace day music jam.
The jam, which will feature some of Fiji's leading musicians, is being organised by Women's NGO FemLINK Pacific.
Executive director Sharon Bhagwan Rolls said as a member of the global partnership for the prevention of armed conflict, International Day of Peace was one of its key events.
"We are joining with peace activists across 14 regions of the world where it's an opportunity to say this is a day for a ceasefire," she said.
She said a ceasefire was a very broad concept, which could range from a day's ceasefire in Syria, to creating peace at the personal level.
She said the country had faced challenges since the coup in 2006, and that International Peace Day 2013 was significant because it falls one year before the scheduled elections.
"As we move towards the scheduled election, regardless of our political perspective, what we need to do is ensure that it's about peace," she said.
Tickets to the jam, which will be held at the Suva Bowling Club, cost $20 and money raised from the event will go to the musicians and to the National Council of Disabled Persons.
