Peace Week: Inclusive Society
Sun 26 September 2021, 16:00 - 18:00
From September 18 to 26, we will celebrate the National PAX Peace Week with a dialogue about inclusive society. How do we deal with differences in culture, usage, skin color, religion and more? With moral customs that are different from ours and our pursuit of equality, in the Netherlands, Europe and worldwide. It takes courage to speak up and stand up for someone who is different from you. To enter into conversation with people who think, live, work, believe, hope and apply differently. During the Peace Week we would like to invite you to talk to people we do not automatically meet, from outside our bubble with other backgrounds, experiences and people.

What is a peace dialogue?
In a peace dialogue you share personal stories with people you do not normally meet and you discover other often surprising perspectives. On the basis of personal experiences, you investigate what inclusive living means for you and others, what you want more of, what you can do yourself and with others. A peace dialogue offers views into more perspectives, points of view, leads to more insight and understanding and concrete personal action to bring peace closer. A peace dialogue can take place in person and/or online to enable more people to participate.
Since the corona crisis, we have been going into dialogue online so that everyone can participate at a safe distance. We use Zoom for the online conversations. You can sign up for a dialogue via the red button on the top of the page. You will then receive an email with a login link and password that will give you access to the Zoom meeting room where the dialogue takes place.
Everyone can do something for peace! With that in mind, PAX (Dutch website) organizes the National Peace Week every year. Together with thousands of people throughout the Netherlands, we will take action for peace and peace dialogues from 18th to 26th September. Are you in? Would you like to take action during Peace Week, facilitate or organize a peace dialogue? PAX (Dutch website) has more than fifty years of experience with Peace Week and is happy to help you with inspiring ideas and practical tips.
