World Peace Day Event 2018
Survivors for Peace
an International Peace Day conference
Admission | FREE by ticket only
The 21st September is the United Nations International Peace Day ( World Peace Day 2018 ). This year the theme of the day celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Universal Declaration states that “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.” These elements build the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.
Terrorism and violent conflict challenges that declaration. Twenty-five years ago terrorists attacked Warrington killing three-year-old Johnathan Ball and 12-year-old Tim Parry. The parents of Tim started a movement for peace, establishing a Foundation and Peace Centre, with the aim that victims of terrorism could become survivors of terrorism and bring about real change through their advocacy and teaching.
On International Peace Day, we are calling upon people affected by terrorism to come together in solidarity to uphold the “Right to Peace” and to announce plans to create an international network of survivors who will campaign and work for peace.
The conference will take place at the iconic Peace Centre and will feature speakers and contributors. Details will be announced on 21 August 2018 but you can book tickets now – to secure your place BOOK TICKETS HERE
