CARE FOR PEACE INVITATION

Dear Accredited UNESCO Clubs nationwide;

Thank you for participating in our first UNESCO Clubs Webinar Series last March 8 in celebration of International Women's Day. Out of 700 registered participants, 450 actually attended and we are happy about your active participation.

Our 2nd UNESCO Club Webinar Series shall be held on May 6, 2021, at 8:00 pm via zoom in coordination with Living Peace International in celebration of United World Week.

Background of United World Week

The United World Week took off in May 1995 atthe end of the 5th edition of Genfest – the regular international meeting ofthe youth around the world who believe that a united world is possible. It has thepurpose of giving life to relations of peaceful coexistence between people andcultures and to propose to local, national, and supranational institutions togive value to every action aimed at universal brotherhood. The united worldweek has begun as a symbolic journey through the 5 continents to rediscover theheritage of various cultures, religions, and civilizations. 20 years after thelaunch of the United World Week, multiple “fragments of fraternity” werecreated in various points of the planet, especially where there is loneliness,poverty, marginalization. These actions that carried forward the United WorldWeek created a public opinion in the mass media all over the world with animpact in different areas of politics, sports, culture, and religion. We have achallenge: Be protagonists of peace and unity between different generations andcultures. This year's UWW celebration is centered on the pathway which is #DaretoCare.It is the slogan and hashtag of our campaign to promote engagement, commitment,active involvement, appreciation… of what? The most vulnerable, the planet, ourinstitutions, our cities, our neighborhoods, the problems of society around us.


In this regard, we request again participants from your club. All accredited UNESCO Clubs should send at least 30 participants to the webinar and register here https://forms.gle/Rnk8UZM99qwXpqhH8.
