We’re expanding our Partnership Team which will lead to stronger links with other organisations who may wish to work with us on the subject of personal peace.
This year we’re working with Celebrate Life to extol the benefit of PEP to individuals and to offer PEP to interested parties. We’re helping Celebrate Life to fund screenings of their film Power to Change [Power to Change] and to provide material for the promotion of PEP at their events.
We’re working closely with two colleges and a university for the possible implementation of PEP for their students. Students at a previous PEP that Peace Partners delivered said:
“‘The finest achievement in life is to be in peace’, I found that very inspiring, and I think it’s something a lot more young people should realise, because life isn’t about money, it’s about finding inner peace and happiness.”
“I think the video really shows that despite the fact society might be so negative, the change depends on you really, and instead of thinking ‘oh why did nobody do something about that’ - be that person that did something about it!”
Volunteers for Peace Partners recently provided support for peace education at a wonderful event in Greenwich, south London. Read more here

nutritious food and personal peace'.
Peace Partners is privileged to be a member of the Global Peace Education Network.
We all say we want peace, but what does it really take to make it happen? What can we learn that will help us live in peace? With ourselves? With each other? With our planet?
The virtual Global Peace Education Day Conference is on 20th September. This year’s theme is Human Rights - Empowering Children, honouring the 75th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Registration is free.
There will be over 20+ speakers, including Prem Rawat, the founder of The Prem Rawat Foundation and the Peace Education Programme. The conference will explore the ways in which peace education helps give our children a voice and a choice.
Peace Education is very important. If young people are brought up to see antagonism and conflict as a normal part of life, it makes it so much harder to choose peace as a default option. It takes a conscious approach to foster the understanding that peace is a culture of prosperity and well-being, and that combativeness leads to suffering and hardship.
We are delighted to share the information below from our partner The Prem Rawat Foundation about their upcoming free virtual event on Wednesday 9th August.
