Sleep for Peace – Wake up to a better world!

Whoever you are, wherever you come from, you are invited to share and celebrate #SleepforPeace with us!


[vc_actionbox type=”primary” controls=”right” title=”Have you added the Sleep for Peace frame to your profile picture yet?” button1=”Show your support!” link1=”https://www.facebook.com/profilepicframes/?overlay_source_object_id=10155181745878227&selected_page_id=349994282060314&selected_overlay_id=483314568728153″ target=“_blank” style1=”outline” size1=”big” style2=”default”]

Why are we doing this?

To start conversations: we wish to highlight the role of our hostels as safe places where cultures meet. Let`s celebrate all these funny dorm conversations lost in translation, international meals shared in the common kitchen with ingredients you can`t pronounce, and long-lasting friendships created along the road with people who are the total opposite of you!

This year, our hostels will again celebrate diversity and highlight the role of youth hostels in mutual understanding, intercultural connections and peace during the week stretching between the International Day of Peace (21st of September) and World Tourism Day (27th September), and beyond.

Sleep for Peace is also part of Hostelling International`s programme of celebrations for the 2017 UN Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development. Our initiative is supported by the UNWTO and has been growing in numbers and more importantly in significance over the years.

Your mission over the next couple of weeks will be to spot this poster and make sure to meet somebody new:

Talk to someone new, break the ice and learn something about your fellow explorers! Let us know what you’ve discovered, snap and share a picture of you two with this poster on social media #Sleepforpeace!

Diversity, tolerance and youth travel are at the very core of the hostelling movement.

The nearly 150 participants were left with some questions to be discussed between them.
– The participants were asked to build their mindmap about peace in teams; discussions about current conflicts, cultural differences, dreams and visions were ignited.
– Participants were asked as a second activity to write down where they think they would see themselves in 20 years and tried to link it with peace.
– We then surveyed to see what were the languages represented in the room and one speaker of each come on stage to teach the others how to say “peace” in their language.
– All participants then placed together to create a massive “masterpeace” (as shown on the picture!)
– All activities were focused on SDG 16 and on learning, understanding and being curious about different cultures.

This event was truly inspiring and involved young travellers from China, India, Hong Kong, Germany, South Korea, Taiwan.
