EVENTS 2018-11-21T15:55:37+00:00


On the morning of Friday 9th November 2018, two days before Armistice Day, thousands of children and young people were involved in INSPIRE events across the country. Some of these were in high profile, simultaneous INSPIRE events in Cathedrals and other major public venues around the UK , others were in schools, and community spaces.

These events marked the centenary of the end of the ‘Great War’ and encouraged young people to ‘remember for peace’  and to take positive action towards peace and conflict resolution in their local communities and personal relationships.

Why not hold your own peace building event?

Peace is not history! We are inviting anyone who has the vision, creativity or initiative to take part in building peace! We want as many people as possible to hold INSPIRE events to commit to working towards peaceful integrated communities and to celebrate what can be achieved together. There are no rules, be as creative as you like but we want to hear from you if you are planning on joining the movement!

We have ideas and resources to help you plan an event itself including ways to reach out to young people in your community and how to promote your event.

If your are intending to hold your own event, please do let us know and we will add yours to our nationwide map.


No matter who you are – get involved today!


If you are a school, why not work with neighbouring schools (not just those within your organisation!) to hold a joint assembly and invite local community members to take part.

Community Leaders

If you are a youthworker or faith leader, why not consider collaborating with your local schools or hosting them in your place of worship to explore peace building and to showcase the work young peace builders are doing in your community.

Civic Leaders

If you are in a positon of civic responsibility (police, Local Council or Children’s and Adult Services etc.) why not consider bringing different community groups together and host a peace building event in your civic centre or town hall, including young people to share their work and hopes and aspirations for your towns and cities.


However, more importantly we want you to share your plans, photos and videos from your event by using the hashtag #Peaceisnothistory and by sharing your work, ideas and shared pledges with us.
