Why Peace Justice Conference?
The world is in desperate need of peace and events that promote peace.
At The Necessary Teacher Training College we also know that the world is full of good people and many good initiatives. This conference aims to fulfil the urgent need of connecting the dots: connect the people with our beautiful world’s diversity, connect the strong will power of many citizens with the practical actions that, one day, will make history, connect the wisdom and awareness with our daily lives and – all together – strive for a better world: where wars of all kinds, and violence, will no longer have space and place to be.
When and where
