On the 21st September 2014 JCI London’s young activists will be joining forces with Peace One Day in promotion of the UN World Peace Day.
At the first kick off meeting ideas flew off in all directions when we tried to figure out what Peace Day will look like this year: with more experience and longer preparation time there awaits bigger and more ambitious goals.
The prevalent question what is peace and what it means to different people dominated our conversations. We came to conclusion that some may see it as a global non-violent interdependence between nations, while others associate with it on a more personal level. There is no right or wrong answer here. After all, it all starts with us. And the people around us, and our communities.
The goal for this year’s event is to spread goodwill and a word of peace.
Who are you going to make peace with this year?
If you would like to get involved our next meeting is on 10 February at the Chamber, please book here:
