London Peace Network plans for 2014

Planning any peace-building activities this year?

The London Peace Network team is gathering on Monday 17 February & we’re excited to hear about your ideas.

Let us know if you’d like to link up and be part of the Network’s activities this year.  Can we support you?  Could we work together?

We’ll be building on our plans so far:

  • marking the UN International Day of Peace over the weekend of 19-21 September
  • Flying for Peace across the Thames (September)
  • exchange visits and peace activities in schools & colleges
  • Peace-Skyping across the continents
  • an energetic launch event
  • bringing together our local communities to celebrate grassroots peace-building
  • practical skills workshops
  • involving our European and global networks & linking up with activities across the UK
  • promoting peace and justice activities across the capital

Find us on Facebook and follow us on twitter.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Is your local Islamic centre, synagogue or church marking the UN International Day of Peace next weekend?

The idea is very simple:

  1. Invite neighbours or visitors to your place of worship
  2. Exchange messages of peace (printed on the back of the flyers, or use your own)
  3. If you like, offer some hospitality – maybe some juice or a cup of tea

Islamic centres are inviting visitors during or after Salaatul-Jumu’a (20th September), synagogues are inviting visitors to enjoy the hospitality of the sukkah on Saturday (21st) and churches are inviting visitors for Sunday worship (22nd) or a cup of tea afterwards.

Take a photograph, send it in with a line or two about your event and we will publish it here and on our Facebook page.  You will be joining thousands of communities across the globe which are marking Peace Day with a huge range of activities.

This was a very popular event last year, with hundreds of groups joining in.  This year we are supported by a range of religious and multifaith organisations.
