In anticipation of the International Day of Peace 2013 (September 21st – a.k.a. “World Peace Day”), the Verbal Aikido website has unveiled its International Peacebuilding Organization Directory (InPOD).
This ever-growing directory of active peacebuilding institutes and associations is the only directory of its kind on the web and now has over 300 entries… Whatever your age, whether you’d like to volunteer or you’re just curious about what’s being done around the world to develop peace and conflict transformation through education, dialogue, sports, music, and much more – you’ll find the contact details for an organization that corresponds to your values and interests on the InPOD! Check it out and discover an initiative you can take locally for the Interational Day of Peace.
In other news, you may already know that can catch me speaking about Verbal Aikido in the upcoming TEDx conference in La Rochelle on October 5th… but the latest scoop is the official book launch, demonstration and signing for the French version of Verbal Aikido Volume 1. To partipate in this interactive event, come join us at Cadence bookshop, in Lyon (France) at 7pm on Friday the 18th of October… you can download the invitation here.
Finally, if you haven’t already seen school teacher John Hunter’s excellent TED talk on the World Peace Game, here it is now!
