Action for Peace #72

What happened?

A group of participants in the Peace in Practice Training Course, in collaboration with the International Secretariat of SCI, designed a 7-day social media campaign to challenge the audience to act for, and reflect on, peace.

From 2 December to 8 December, on SCI IS Facebook and Instagram accounts, we published one challenge per day, inviting people to complete a task and share the result online.

The challenges ranged from creating a peace crossword, to taking the time for an action that brings inner peace, writing a letter to make peace with another person, sharing projects that promote peace in the society, identifying your emotions, practicing non-violent communication and trying out forest-bathing to feel connected to nature. The different levels of peace were explored through the challenges, and people shared their thoughts, ideas and feelings in a very fruitful virtual exchange.
