A Cruise Ship Promoting Peace: PEACE BOAT @ the World Peace Forum Vancouver
Imagine a floating global village that circumnavigates the world to promote peace and development initiatives…or come visit the real thing as PEACE BOAT berths at Canada Place on Wednesday, June 28th on its 53rd voyage. The 30,000-ton passenger liner arrives just in time for the World Peace Forum (June 23-28) when it docks in Vancouver after visiting 17 countries, including Viet Nam, Sri Lanka, Jordan, Ireland, Jamaica, and El Salvador.
A unique non-profit organization, PEACE BOAT offers educational programs on its 3-month around-the-world voyages, organizing lecture series, cross-cultural dialogues, interactive peace-building workshops, and humanitarian aid projects onboard and in the countries it visits.
PEACE BOAT, an NGO in Special Consultative Status with the United Nations, was founded in 1983 by a group of Japanese students who wanted to meet directly with people in the Asia-Pacific who had suffered during Japan’s past military aggression in order to build reconciliation and peace for the future.
Cool, eh? So, check out the following programs held onboard PEACE BOAT on June 28th:
*10:00am-12:00pm: “Making the Earth Whole: An Integrated Peace Agenda”
*12:30pm-13:30pm: “Travelling the World, Changing the World”. A presentation of Peace Boat’s history, current programs, and upcoming projects in North America (also featuring Japanese Taiko drumming and World Champion Street Performer Kim Chang Haeng who opened this year’s Oscars)
*7:00pm-8:00pm: World Peace Forum Closing Ceremony @ Vancouver Art Gallery.
::NOTE:: PRE-REGISTRATION is required to attend onboard events for port security purposes. Please send your full name and date of birth to firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE MONDAY, JUNE 26. Valid ID will be required to board the Peace Boat.
