Peace Building and Our Environment

UN International Day of Peace Conference is proudly presented by the Women's Federation for World Peace Australia (WFWP) and the Universal Peace Federation.

Coinciding with the International Day of Peace, which is observed around the world each year on 21st September, the International Day of Peace Conference is an annual one-day event to support and foster peacebuilding within our diverse multicultural community.

The conference brings together people of different communities and faiths to discuss current strategies to establish Peace at the local community level.

Although science and technology are highly developed, the peace we desire is still out of reach. Why?

Conflict, hatred and selfishness, embedded in the hearts of human beings, is still causing new conflicts around the globe. Conflict and division within the person is the starting point. Conflict starts in the hearts of human beings. Peace must start there as well.

Presenters include:

  • Dr John BellavanceThe Search for Meaning in the Modern World

  • Anne BellavanceBridge of Peace

  • Shanika KalansooriyaThe Role of Women in Peace Building from a Buddhist Perspective (Bridge of Peace segment)
