Today’s Youth- Architects Of Peace? Free Event 22nd October

 

A guest message from a friend of mine, the inspirational John Loughton:

‘I wanted to let you know about an event I’m involved in on 22nd October (this coming Wednesday) – its on Youth and Peace.

Its following 18 yo friend of mine, and youth activist Tawfik being shot dead in Libya on 19th of last month. He believed in peace, democracy and youth getting involved in politics. He was seen as a threat to the terrorists so paid with his life. A powerful reminder of the importance of youth in this country getting involved for peaceful change!

We will have a night to be inspired by youth empowerment, learn more about peace and international affairs, and also having a Q & A – including with former First Minister of Scotland and Special Peace Envoy to the Prime Minister Lord McConnell’.
