Irene Woodhead and a team of volunteers launched the Peace Education Program in Cornwall, UK with a screening of “Inside Peace,” a documentary about four inmates who attended the peace workshops in a Texas prison. One viewer said it was “absolute madness that there are inmates who have a life of pain and difficulty who are in more peace than billions of people on the outside world, living normal ‘free’ lives… It was just amazing to me— if these guys get in contact with that, then anyone can.”
The National Lottery Community Fund awarded a grant of £10,000 to expand The Prem Rawat Foundation’s Peace Education Program in the UK.
This summer the Peace Partners charity hosted the “Waves of Change” forum at the Croydon Festival of Peace, inviting activists, artists, and community leaders to explore the Peace Education Program as a part of the solution for rising youth violence in London. Peace Partners recently released this video with highlights from the event.
