Say HI for Peace – Calling all Peace Seekers!

At Hostelling International, we’re all about making the world a better place. As the wise Eleanor Roosevelt once said, ‘It isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.’ So, let’s roll up our sleeves and work together for peace!”

We are calling all peaceseekers to help us celebrate the UN day of World Peace, 21 September and make this our most impactful Say HI for Peace yet.

Help us ignite change

Say HI for Peace 2023 is fast approaching, and we want YOU to be a part of it! We believe peace is a journey, a continuous process of self-awareness, learning, understanding, and taking action. But, we all need a little help along the way, right?

What would you do for peace?

Ready to make a difference? It’s easy! Take a moment to think about the ways you already contribute to peace. It could be as simple as being the first to reach out and make new friends, learning about different cultures and injustices, or promoting positive initiatives in your community. Whatever it is, let’s turn it into a personal peace pledge/promise.
