International peace day event

By Chris Adams

On Saturday, Sept. 21, the University of Calgary’s Consortium for Peace Studies will host the Calgary Peace Day. The event will coincide with the United Nations International Day of Peace, which will see events promoting non-violence held in cities around the globe.

Many planned events will take place at Eau Claire Market. A Peace Run, yoga and live music will all be hosted at the downtown hub.

According to the International Peace Day website, “Peace Day has marked our personal and planetary progress toward peace”.

Roots and Shoots U of C, an offshoot of the Jane Goodall-founded environmental group, will help organize events for the Day of Peace.
