YMCA Peace Week | November 17-24, 2018


YMCA Peace Week takes place November 17-24, 2018

Peace Week is a time when we celebrate the presence of peace in our local and global communities, and reflect on the peace-building work that happens all year both inside and outside the Y.

What is peace?

More than the absence of violence and conflict, peace is the presence of conditions like fairness, inclusion, empathy, security, and respect for diversity. Peace is also the ongoing work of building and rebuilding these conditions. The Y is dedicated to strengthening the foundations of community-and peace is fundamental to strong and healthy communities.

Throughout Peace Week, YMCAs across Canada offer activities that help children, youth and adults explore peace from personal, local and global perspectives.  Locally, the YMCA-YWCA of the National Capital Region will be marking Peace Week with a number of awareness activities in each of our centres. Please help us celebrate Peace Week by joining the conversation. Learn more here:
