6) 2 pm – Opening of the Høegh with Peace Fair (responsible: EACs) These groups are demonstrating how their activities promote peace and well-being. The local community is invited for the day.
(In The Hoegh : The Artivist Project The idea is that every student and staff of all the colleges would fill in the card with a message, calling for ‘Peace One Day’. The other side of the card is to be decorated with his or her artwork. At our college, we will be doing this in the Høegh, as one of our twenty-four hour Peace Day activities.
We request that all the cards be sent to us here, at RCN. Then, we will relay them to Ban Ki-moon, the Secretary-General. This action would be a very powerful statement of peace from the UWC movement. We have extended an invitation to all the colleges to join us in their own ways in our Peace Day Activities:)
