Since its declaration by the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) on September 21st, the International Day of Peace is celebrated in orden to strengthen the ideals of peace among all nations and peoples. A day that hostels around the world join under the slogan Sleep for Peace promoted by Hostelling International.
This year, the slogan “Partners for Peace – Dignity for All” wants to emphasize the importance for all social groups to work together for peace.
Sleep for Peace
To celebrate the International Day of Peace youth hostels around the world have created a net in order to promote peace through travel and cultural exchange.
The Youth Hostel Pere Tarrés has joined this initiative with the aim of promoting harmony and non-violence through the implementation of activities both for guests and staff of the Hostel.
One activity that has already begun is the creation of a Facebook group “HI Sleep 4 Peace” which bring together the activities that are taking place in hostels in the world and is a meeting place for all people interested in the project.
Activities Sleep For Peace in the Youth Hostel Pere Tarrés
The Pere Tarrés Youth Hostel joins Sleep For Peace with performing simple initiatives dedicated to creating synergies in the week from September 21st to 27th .
You will find in the reception the Book of Signatures “Sleep for Peace 2015” in which guests will be able to sign and express what peace means to them. And we will share it in social networks.
Guests and staff at the hostel can take a selfie or a photo with a Dove that will be placed in the hostel.
To make noise it is important to use the #SleepForPeace hashtag to share photos, ideas, comments or videos on social networks like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter… Do not forget to tag us @youth_hostel_peretarres!
Getting involved in Sleep for Peace is to join forces in a worldwide initiative for peace and nonviolence.
