A Lasting Legacy of Peace

The 100 Days of Peace project has come to an end “but it is not the end of the journey - there is, in fact, no end destination called ‘Peace’, a place where we can say, ‘We’re here, we’ve done it!’ It seems to us that the journey itself is the peace, and whenever we make the decision to be more peaceful ourselves, then we have achieved it.” Barry and Margaret Mizen, Day 100, Your Journey to Peace

The Olympic and Paralympic Games may be over but we recapture something of their spirit every time we take an action towards peace, however small, between now  and the next Games in Rio, 2016.

We will continue to petition governments to assess how well they fulfilled the commitments of the UN Resolution - signed by all 193 member states - to observe a cessation of conflict, the Olympic Truce, during the Games between 27 July - 9 Sept 2012. Can we do better in four years’ time?

The torch now passes to the Brazilian community. Brazil, too, seeks peace and we offer them our heartfelt support.
