This year, 2013, the International Day of Peace is on Saturday 21 September.
'Peace Building, Peace Keeping and Conflict Resolution: The Civil Society Contribution' is the overall theme for an international symposium to launch the Edinburgh Peace Initiative.
As previously reported on Ekklesia, Professor Jolyon Mitchell from Edinburgh University delivered his inaugural lecture entitled 'How can weapons be turned into art? How can swords be transformed into ploughshares?' back in September last year. It is now available to view here on YouTube, and very well worth watching.
A new report has been published looking at the use of Information and Communications Technologies for peacebuilding (ICT4Peace), with a Preface by Kofi A. Annan, former Secretary-General of the United Nations.
