This event will take place in the Learning Zone and is organised in partnership with the Peace People who have said the heart of peace culture is the understanding that every person’s humanity is more important than their ethnic inheritance. It is this principle that underpins the event, which will involve learning about the work of the Peace People around the world today, viewing relevant material from their archives and taking part in joint activities.

At 11am Nobel Laureate Mairead Corrigan Maguire will launch the Peace People’s ‘Better Together’ programme. Representatives of the Peace People will remain throughout the day discussing their history and their work around the world today with visitors and young people. There will be a table tennis tournament using a special LED table and opportunities to take part in a craft activity.

Come along and celebrate International Peace Day with the Peace People, learn about their 40-year history and have fun taking part in games and activities with friends and family.
