In today’s world of international tensions, impending climate disaster, seemingly perpetual trade wars and ongoing racial and class conflict, now, more than ever, we need to find a way to balance all this chaos and despair with secure and peaceful energy.
To this end, Nina Goncharova (founder of GONG 3000) and her team conduct the School of Life program in Irkutsk, Russia. This year, they are sponsoring a peaceful trip entitled: “The New Earth: Baikal - Planet Expedition Baikal Peace Ship” from August 23-30, 2019. The aim of this expedition is to come together and envision the steps necessary for transitioning from an old world of self-destruction into a new world of love, unity, beauty and creation.
The delegation of the Federation of World Peace and Love (FOWPAL) was invited to take part in this event and shared with participants the Declaration of International Day of Conscience, which has received endorsements from more than 160 countries.
Specifically, the FOWPAL delegation invited all of the event participants to join them in co-hosting the ceremony of promoting global endorsement of the “Declaration of an International Day of Conscience” in Russia and in collaborating to build peaceful cultures driven by love and conscience.
