Raising Peace

Action for Peace #20

What is it About?

To mark the 100th anniversary of SCI and the International Day of Peace, IVP Australia is organizing a series of events within the project “Raising Peace”.

The theme for our celebration is Raising Peace where we will highlight successful stories, campaigns and actions for peace by ordinary and extraordinary people.

The program has been modified due to COVID-19 measures, and we will keep updating it as new dates are confirmed.

Practical information

IVP is pleased to be celebrating the International Day of Peace and 100 years of peace-making in cooperation with the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom NSW (WILPF), who also celebrates 100 years in 2020.
