Peace begins with all of us!
There’s lots of great work for peace & justice happening across our city. Sometimes it’s obvious, other times we may be walking past a peaceful place every day without thinking about it.
What small act of kindness has someone done for you recently? Pop into Peace Hub to share it, say thank you and inspire others. Then pledge to pay it forward: choose a small act of kindness that you will offer someone else, to keep spreading the love.
Let’s celebrate the positive people, places & organisations that are already helping to make peace in our city and think about what we can all do to help our community.
Pop into Peace Hub in March & April 2018 to:
- Share a small act of kindness
- Pledge to Pay it Forward
- Get top tips on dealing with conflict
- Plus: family-friendly drop-in activities throughout the Easter school holidays.
