...Peace One Day - 21 September


“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
committed citizens can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

- Margaret Mead

This Wednesday 21st September is Peace Day. Find out more about the day via this Ted Talk by Peace One Day founder, film-maker and activist Jeremy Gilley.

Meanwhile, in one corner of the world, media production company Just Vision is leading by example. They aim to promote peaceful resolutions to conflict by encouraging us all to Pay Attention To Non-Violence. Producer Julia Bacha shares more in this enlightening Ted Talk.

"The behaviour of entire communities and countries
can be influenced, depending on where the international
community chooses to focus its attention"
- Julia Bacha, Just Vision
