Event description

Description

Join millions around the world to support the United Nations International Day of Peace "Peace Day". Be part of Canada's largest event for Peace Day as we gather on Parliament Hill in a mass mindfulness meditation - a big sit to take a big stand. Falling on a Saturday this year we are including programming for kids and youth - our peacemakers of the future.

This year's UN theme"Climate Action for Peace" is about combating climate change as a way to protect and promote peace on our planet. The UN is hosting an emergency "Conference for the Climate - A Race We Can Win" as part of Peace Day 2019 with world leaders and climate peacemaker Greta Thunberg who is leading our youth globally in climate action.

All are welcome to join in Peace Day 2019 - you don't need to be a meditator. Come and show the world that peace on the planet and a healthy climate matter to you. Come and send a message to all those who we elect to our Canadian Houses of Parliament to represent us, that they must lead our kids, and the planet, to a peaceful future.

This is a free event but please register so we have numbers. In registering you will also agree for Innerspace to send you just a few messages a year on opportunities to practise mindfulness meditation as well as community and fundraising events to support inner peace as the pathway to outer peace. You can opt-on at any time.

Peace.
