Join us on Sunday September 14, 2014 as Seeds, Parents, Counselors and friends walk across the Memorial State Bridge in Augusta to the State House to raise awareness and support for Seeds of Peace and its work in Maine and around the world.
Walkers will convene at the New Cony High School (60 Pierce Dr., Augusta, ME) Sunday morning at 9:00 for opening ceremonies starting at 9:30. The walk will begin at 10:00am, ending at the Statue of Samantha Smith, with events to follow.
Seeds of Peace needs your help to spread the word and raise awareness for its vital mission – to inspire and equip new generations of leaders from regions of conflict with the relationships, understanding, and skills needed to advance lasting peace.

About Seeds of Peace:
In the face of some of the world’s most intractable conflicts, Seeds of Peace gives rise to new generations of leaders uniquely inspired and equipped to build lasting peace.
Treaties are negotiated by governments; peace is made by people. Since 1993, Seeds of Peace has set the standard in international peace-building by providing exceptional young people and educators from regions of conflict with an otherwise impossible opportunity to meet their historic enemies face-to-face at our International Camp in Maine.
We build on their extraordinary and critical relationships and understanding through year-round local programs that focus on the core leadership capacities needed to advance peace. There are now over 5,000 Seeds and Educators from 27 countries who prove that solutions exist, peace is possible, and there is reason to have hope for a better future.
