“To release the power of individuals to create the Space for Peace and reduce the incidence of domestic abuse, bullying and antisocial behaviour in our communities.”
The UN International Day of Peace on 21 September every year is not only about creating peace between nations, it’s about non-violence in our homes, communities and schools. Therefore Peace Day is relevant to every human being on the planet.
Through creating Spaces for Peace we aim to raise awareness of peace in our local communities and facilitate interventions that enable individuals in our communities to understand the meaning of peace to them and for them and the impact of peace of the health, wealth and happiness of our lives and our communities.
We are passionate about bringing this awareness to the widest context possible working through the arts, culture, local authorities, public sector, commercial sector, education, health, prisons, entertainment, sport, leisure, social housing and charity & voluntary sectors.
If you are based in the North East of England and would like to contribute to raising awareness of peace or would like to share with us any ideas you have about how to raise awarness please like our page and write on our wall.
