Peace Partners is delighted to be hosting an event at The Festival of Peace, Croydon to tackle the pertinent issue of gang violence and knife crime in the UK. The timely event coincides with the recent announcement that peace ambassador Prem Rawat’s Peace Education Programme (PEP) will be rolled out across London to help to tackle gang violence and knife crime. Peace Partners is a partner of The Prem Rawat Foundation and supports the delivery of the PEP to a number of prisons in the UK.
The event, entitled the ‘Waves of Change Forum: Peace, Gangs and Conflict Resolution’, will premiere the UK screening of The Prem Rawat Foundation film, ‘Peace is Inevitable’ on 22nd June 2018. The film highlights how peace education has resolved entrenched youth gang conflict in Ecuador.
