100-Day Countdown to the UN International Day of Peace

Broadcast on June 13, 2015
With Jane Goodall, Ph.D., DBE & Avon Mattison & KIRAN BALI MBE JP & Bill Yotive & Rick Ulfik & Dot Maver & Lisa Parker & Frederick Arment & Rev. Deborah Moldow

The UN has dedicated the 2015 International Day of Peace to "Partnerships for Peace -- Dignity for All." The Summer of Peace leading up to September 21st gives us the opportunity to move from concern about the great challenges facing our world to taking a stand on Peace Day as one human community united in hope. We will discuss plans at the United Nations and around the world to highlight the actions of people serving a wide range of causes yet building together a new culture of peace.

This session includes a performance of Rev. Patrick McCollum's "Peace Violin." To download a recording of the Violin at high fidelity, click here.
