Workshop marks World Peace Day

Mere Naleba
Friday, September 23, 2016

TO mark World Peace Day, the Pacific Centre for Peace Building yesterday organised a three-day workshop which gave its 50 participants an opportunity to talk openly on various issues affecting not only Fijians, but those across the Pacific too.

PCP board chairman Larry Thomas said the workshop was a breath of fresh air for many participants because they openly shared their views and it was a safe space for everyone.

"This is basically what this conference has been, it has given us a safe space to come together to tell and share our stories," Mr Thomas said.

"It goes beyond the superficial and lip service that sometimes or often is associated with peace and peace building."

He said the panel discussion also allowed members of the workshop to come up with many creative ways in which they could return and promote peace and peace building in their communities, churches and work groups.
