[Event] International Day of Peace Celebration 2013 -GenPeace
International Day of Peace Celebration 2013
As we near the annual celebration of the International Day of Peace on September 21, 2013, Generation Peace Youth Network (GenPeace) continues its tradition of taking this opportune day to raise awareness, connect and educate the young generation across the country regarding the developments on the peace process. Generation Peace is a nationwide coming together of youth organizations for peace and human rights issues in the country.
This year the youth network is bringing simultaneous peace initiatives in what we consider the “National Day of Action for the Peace Process.” With the theme “Education for Peace: Learn and Support the Peace Talks” we pose a challenge to the Filipino youth to be active agents of peaceful change. Generation Peace will have 10 simultaneous events nationwide.
In line with this, we invite you to our community gathering on Peace Day. Join the different groups and sectors in calling out for peace through dialogues, art booths, exhibits, peace process updates, and interfaith prayers. We are also asking you to collaborate in our on-the-spot nationwide collective art dubbed as the Peace Tree—a collection of do-it-yourself lanterns with your peace messages to the government, NDFP, MILF and peace advocates.
For organizations, we would also like to invite you to register your advocacy and activity booths for the event. Attached is the Peace Day Activity/Advocacy Booth and Exhibition Request Form.
The celebration will be at the Charito Planas Garden, Quezon Memorial Circle on September 21, Saturday from 8:00AM to 1:00PM. Please find attached the provisional program for the event and thank you for confirming with Bev Orozco (RSVP: email firstname.lastname@example.org or via text 09178147810 on or before the 16th of September 2013, Monday).
May our efforts contribute to a more robust peace constituency that will help build our collective peace dream. Thank you.
