The Ojai International City of Peace team presents:
Fifth Annual United Nations International Day of Peace Festival
The free event will be an educational, entertaining and inclusive celebration for all ages. Three peace advocates are guiding the 2019 festival: Brian Berman, Lisa Berman, and Ray Powers.
“Climate Action for Peace” is the theme for the 2019 International Day of Peace. Brian Berman says, “We feel the importance of understanding the connection between peace and our care for the earth and the actions we can take to express both.” Powers adds: “In alignment with the festival intention we encourage people to walk or ride their bicycles to the event as this helps reduce our carbon footprint in the community. To reduce the number of paper flyers, we invite attendees to bring their smartphones and take photos of any displayed information.”
The ICP team has invited organizations, inspiring speakers and artists who are peacebuilders and sustainability advocates. Themes will include: Educational Foundations of Peace in Schools; Climate Change Action Steps; Creating a Bicycle Friendly City; Transition to Renewable Energy; Protecting Our Public Lands; Holistic Health – Peace Within/Peace Without; and Community Peace Building.
Awaken both inner artist and peacebuilder in the family-friendly interactive Peace Art Zone. Plan on bringing your lunch – if possible, in zero waste reusable containers – and join the worldwide “Feast for Peace,” an annual global event that will take place in multiple countries across six continents. The fiscal sponsor of the event is the local educational non-profit, Awakening Peace 501 (C)(3), dedicated to creating events that bring communities together and inspire support for local and world peace initiatives.
