#yyj Participates in UN International Day of Peace Celebrations

World Peace Day – September 21st, ’15  yyj-world-peace

A vision made real through the efforts of  Jeremy Gilley, the UN’s International Day of Peace has expanded here into Greater Victoria.  We began a  Grassroots Campaign in 2014 to bring it focus and attention with a calendar sharing local ‘peace themed’ events.  This included some fun social media events.  This year our 2nd Annual Greater Victoria (YYJ) Peace Week Project and it starts Sept 13 – 23, ’15!  There are some old and new events.  We hope more will be added as Greater Victoria gets on board!
