Description

Afri’s 2012 Hedge School (Scoil Chois Claí) will be organised in partnership with the International Peace Bureau and will coincide with the first ever IPB Council meeting which takes place in Dublin on the same week-end.

Afri is proud to work in partnership with the IPB, given its distinguished record in promoting peace over many years. The IPB is the longest established International Peace organisation with member organisations around the globe, and is a winner of the 1910 Nobel Peace Prize. Sean MacBride, a longstanding friend and advisor to Afri was IPB President for more than ten years. And during this year’s Hedge School week-end the IPB sponsored Sean MacBride Peace Prize will be presented by its first ever recipient, President Michael D. Higgins.

One of IPBs main themes is ‘Disarmament for Development’ which connects with Afri’s work and this year’s Hedge School will explore related themes such as ‘Climate, resources and war’, ‘Non-violent struggles for democracy’ and ‘The role of women in the Arab Spring’. As usual, there will also be music, theatre and good conversation. Come along and join us. Céad míle fáilte romhaibh.


This event is organised by Afri and the International Peace Bureau.
