RELATED EVENTS: What's Peace Got to Do with Transition? Peace Camp - 26 June

Norwich Peace Camp was partly inspired by the International Peace Cycle, to bring together local peace, community, faith, environmental, charity and other groups, all working in different ways for a fairer more sustainable world.

The first Norwich Peace Camp was in July 2006 and took up just one quarter of the atrium of the Forum. Since then it has expanded and for 2010 the entire atrium has been booked, with great extras including Fusion, where we will grow a ‘Peace Garden’ in the preceding week, and use the Chapelfield screen.

Peace Camp is a chance to showcase our vision and actions to fellow community activists and public alike. Refusing to fight over oil is just one of its many uniting threads. Here are a few more:

Passionate, practical hard work • Belief in fair shares for all, with the implicit need to reduce our consumption if we are to avoid exploiting our fellow human beings and destroying the eco-systems of the planet. • Wish to find common ground with others• Commitment to community - because it makes life joyful, but also because resilient societies enable us to resist shocks ranging from peak oil and climate change to government policy and depression.• Acting locally is what Transition does best. Campaigning globally is where peace activism comes into its own.

Transition Norwich has booked a stall at the Peace Camp on 26th at the Forum. We have leaflets and banner to start with - and can do much more if we decide to. So if you would like to take part or have any ideas please contact lesley7railway@yahoo.co.uk (Lesley Grahame/Communications)
