Peace3 “Peace Within” Call for Video Entries Now Open!

The Peace3 “Peace Within” Call for Video Entries is now open! Submit your videos to our online contest at Peace3 Woobox  or Peace3 Facebook or Peace3@Tutu. Be sure to mark your calendars!

Peace within is the presence of everyday  compassion and humanity.​ Peace within is the everyday practice of taking very personal steps towards being better than we are.  Peace within is contagious acts of love that leave our circle and our community better than we found it.  Peace within spreads and grows.

Peace Fellow Tamara Lorincz – An Update from the Field

Tamara LorinczRotary Peace Fellow Tamara Lorincz updates us about her Applied Field Experience.  As planned, Tamara is now based in Geneva.

“I’m doing my Applied Field Experience in Geneva, and it is really a great place for an internship, especially if the UN Human Rights Council is in session.  Here are some pictures of what I have been doing.

Tamara also includes a comment in her update, speaking from her background serving as Executive Director of the Nova Scotia Environmental Network before embarking on her Rotary Peace Fellowship.  She says, “Also, very glad about Desmond Tutu’s tough stand against Canada’s tar sands – he’s right when he says that it is the dirtiest industrial development on the planet.”

Be sure to view her entire photo album at the link above.  We chose with difficulty just two to include in this post.
