Peace Day Youth Convergence: End War. Build Peace Together.

Wednesday, September 21 @ 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

“End War. Build Peace Together.”
One Humanity Institute is bringing life and hope to a place that has traditionally been one of the darkest places in our world’s history. Next to the former Auschwitz concentration camp, a House of Hope has been born out of a donated bakery, and is now housing Ukrainian Refugees looking for a safe place to call home.
Within the House of Hope, a Peace Lab will serve as a central hub not only to connect young Ukrainian refugees with their teachers and families back home, but it will allow them to participate in a Peace Day Youth Convergence with others across the world. The Youth of our time will have a chance to turn places of darkness into places of life and hope.

To celebrate this pivotal time of turning darkness into light, there will be two celebrations:
On September 17th at 10:30 AM EDT a ribbon-cutting livestream broadcast to celebrate the official opening of the Peace Lab at The House of Hope. The Peace Lab is dedicated to Philip M. Hellmich, long time international Peacebuilder who was loved by many around the world. This event is part of the opening ceremonies of Peace Week 2022 and can be watched here http://theone.stream
On September 21st, the International Day of Peace, at 12:30 PM EDT the Peace Lab will host a Peace Day Youth Convergence with participants from Oswiecim-Auschwitz, Chicago, Poland, Ukraine, and Rwanda. This event can be watched here http://theone.stream

Call to Action:
Every person who takes a step forward for peace contributes to global peace. All are welcome to join the Peace Week opening ceremony on September 17th and the Peace Day Youth Convergence on the International Day of Peace on September 21st.
