Acting on this year’s theme of End Racism, Build Peace, the Association for Historical Dialogue and Research, the Home for Cooperation, The Home Café and Peace Players Cyprus join together to organise a series of activities promoting and celebrating peace. On the International Day of Peace, September 21, a series of activities, performances and presentations will take place inviting all of the communities of the island.
The line-up of activities showcases different tools the organisers have been utilising for peacebuilding and increasing inter-communal contact in Cyprus. These include education, the arts, sports and of course, food. The events will begin at 5.30pm with the launch of the Association for Historical Dialogue and Research’s educational book titled Cyprus: A Classroom without Walls. The publication provides support to educators and students of lower and upper secondary schools on their study visits to various sites across Cyprus with historic, cultural, geographical or any other form of significance.
Following the launch, there will be a teaser of the publication, which will incorporate activities and a tour of the buffer zone near the Ledra Palace. The activity will begin at 6.45pm and will explore the physical elements that provide information and insights about the past and present status of the area. For this part of the event, the launch and its parallel activity, those interested in attending should register via the link on Facebook (International Day of Peace Celebrations). The evening will continue with DJ performances by Radio Pangea and Annie as well as basketball activities by Peace Players Cyprus.
