EVENT: Bridges to Peace Global 2014
From September 15th to 29th, people all over the world are walking for peace in celebration of Bridges to Peace International and International Peace Day. There are many walks arranged all across the globe and now we are organizing one right here in Montreal! Our fundraising is going towards Seeds of Peace, an organization that, in the face of some of the world’s most intractable conflicts, gives rise to new generations of leaders uniquely inspired and equipped to build lasting peace.
Seeds of Peace needs your help to spread the word and raise awareness for its vital mission – to empower leaders of the next generation with the skills necessary to advance peace!
About Seeds of 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.
