The Peace Agenda

by Campaign ~ March 26th, 2015. Filed under: News.

Peace …. What does this word mean to you? How important is it in your day-to-day life, is it something you ever think about? We in the UK are lucky to live in relative harmony, free from the fear of violence and conflict. However, in many countries this is not the case and it is wise not to take peace for granted.

With this in mind, we at the peace agenda will continue and start new conversations on peace  in the UK.

In co-creating this group, we seek to engage hearts and minds by hosting speakers, debating  and watching films on peace and interrelated topics. This could be anything from watching  ‘Good Morning Vietnam” with a large bowl of popcorn though to discussing ways to engage  with your local MPs, debating on current issues or national and international policies.

We invite you as a valued member to let us know if there are speakers that you would  particularly like to hear, films that you are passionate about and would love to watch and discuss or even if you feel inspired and would like team up with us and take the opportunity to create and host a Peace Agenda meet up in your area.

I am excited to announce that the 21st of May is our first meet up date at Friends House and I am in the process of finding speakers for our inaugural event. I am thrilled to be starting this journey together with so many of you and if you are not a member yet and peace matters to you, come and join us at

I look forward to welcoming you to our first event and supporting the group to grow and blossom. Remember as Robert Fulghum said “Peace is not something you wish for; it’s something you make, something you do, something you are, and something you give away.”
