What is Planting Peace?
Planting Peace is a two week cross-cultural training session that brings together twenty young people from around the world and Alberta. First piloted in 2010, the program provides practical training that is enhanced through experiential field trips and enriched through the stories and contexts of our participants.
Planting Peace is all about breaking down barriers and creatively talking across boundaries to work towards a more peaceful world. Once complete, participants will have the skills and the network support needed to be peace promoters in the regions and contexts where they live.
Introducing Planting Peace 2013!
Planting Peace 2013 has started with 17 participants from 10 different countries. The theme of this year's Planting Peace is storytelling for peace.
