A Local Act For Peace is a one day festival held in Sweden, USA and Nigeria, that will also be broadcast live throughout the globe. The purpose of this event is to invite people to join us in this party for peace. One of the background reasons for taking this initiative is that we believe in the power of people acting from the heart.
A local act for peace is not about politics, not about religion, nor social, cultural or ethnic in its positioning. It is about the idea that peace is created by individuals and this on a local basis while it is manifested more like a wish on the political arena.
If you are about peace, you are welcome to join us!
