International day of peace in serres
This event is going to take place on the 23rd of September (Saturday) from 4pm till 8 pm in the Central Park of Serres.
This years International Day of Peace message is Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for all. It honors the spirit of TOGETHER - promotes respect, safety and dignity for everyone forced to flee their homes. To support diversity, non-discrimination and acceptance. “Together, let us stand up against bigotry and for human rights. Together, let us build bridges. Together, let us transform fear into hope.”
And what could be more better on that day than bringing people together to enjoy nice afternoon with picnic.
We would like to ask the people, who join our event, to bring with themselves some food that they have prepared before, so in this case we can share our own food with each other. It’s always nice to taste other countries traditional food.
What else will happen?
In order to have fun time and learn some traditional greek dances we are going to invite folkdance groups, or our greek friends can show us some of them. We would like our Yazidi friends as well to introduce their dances with us. In our experience, we know how much they like to dance.
For the children, and of course not just for the children, we are going to have games, like football, badminton, rocket, frisbee on the sport field.
If you feel creative and would like to show your artistic side, we are planning to create photo wall which people can decorate with their writings, drawings etc to show support for the International Day of Peace. We will use this later in the event as a photo wall to take portraits of the people in front of the wall.
It’s always a nice feeling when people support each other one way or another. PRAXIS Greece team would like to ask the people to support the event with a contribution to our picnic tables. If you have some food items like fruits, vegetables, flour, sugar, milk etc that you would like to share with us, we would be really thankful!
Come and share your time with us!
