Streatham, South London
This great project inspired by Peace One Day, brings together the vision of the International Day of Peace with local initiatives and individuals working on peace in personal and global ways. Workshops, talks and participatory activities explore the culture and concept of peace in an inspiring and open-minded atmosphere.
Events begin Tuesday the 18th to Sunday the 23rd. The VPP is there Saturday the 22nd with international poems selling Dutch peace tulip (pax) bulbs .
This is a creative model for neighborhoods internationally to recognise and build upon 21 September - to broadcast and bring together initiatives on economic justice, non-violence, wellness, peace on the streets and on the planet!
Planting peace tulips now to bloom in 2013 connect (assisted by mother nature!) the present and future with a committment to the Earth Charter's vision; outlined by the budding US Peace Academy: Wholeness created by right relationships with oneself, other persons, other cultures, other life, Earth, and the larger whole of which all are a part.
