Uniting for Peace Spring Conference: “Can We Unite for Peace: Building Citizen Power for Change”
Where: Wesley’s Chapel, 49 City Road, London, EC1Y 1AU
When: 12:00-17:00 (AGM at 10:30-11:45), Saturday 10th March
There are many peace organisations doing exemplary work on single issues like abolition of war, ending arms trade, nuclear disarmament, poverty reduction, countering terrorism and extremism, violations of human rights and mitigation of climate change. However, the impact is not fully realized as while the goal of achieving peace is the same, the work is not done together together. Living in an interdependent world, with more and more global threats and challenges, there is a need to work together in a concerted and united way to tackle the interlinked global issues through peace activism.
Instead of focusing on thematic forums such as militarism, water, migration or nuclear disarmament, how about if all these numerous organizations worked together to search a common ground in unity to build citizen power, a force to reckon with and work together for building a momentum for change. The purpose of working together is to transform violent conflict, advance human development, promote just and harmonious societies and protect the planet in a shorter span of time.
Expert speakers from Uniting for Peace and various peace, human rights and environmental organizations will examine critical issues affecting world peace and explore how an atmosphere of working together can be built to tackle the root causes of wars, violence, terrorism, and mitigate climate change crisis in order to build a peaceful world. Can we come up with a plan of common action towards this goal?
