URI September Youth Connection Café - with Beit Ashams for Self Development Palestine for Self Development Palestine

27 September - 7am PST/2pm GMT/7.30pm IST.

Join the upcoming URI Youth Connection Café for a session on “Practicing Peace Within and Peace Without”. Led by Sally Zaghmout, from Beit Ashams for Self Development in Palestine, this session will introduce participants to simple practices of meditation and movement to help manage stressful emotions. 

As young peacebuilders our work can cause stress and anxiety as we face community challenges and conflicts in a direct way. It is common knowledge that we need to practice our own inner peace to be peacebuilders in the world, but how do we do this? And how can we support each other and the communities around us with these practices?

Together with URI - Global Community Call - Peacebuilding

15 September 2022 — 13:00 GMT / 6:00 am PDT

In 1981 the United Nations established September 21 as the International Day of Peace to highlight “commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples.” The 2022 theme identified by the UN is "End Racism. Build Peace".

Each year many Cooperation Circles around the world celebrate the International Day of Peace. This year URI will also celebrate it as a global community through a "Together with URI" zoom call. We will focus on peacebuilding efforts in URI. URI staff will share one or two stories, then we will break into small groups for participants to share their own peacebuilding work. All members of the URI network are invited to attend.

This discussion will be led by URI Director of Global Programs, Alice Swett.

Please join the Together with URI global community calls.
