Peace Week

IJBC Online 2020 was an incubator for many projects that came in 2020 and early 2021. This included Peace Week, a collaboration between JB Brazil, JB Lebanon and JB Philippines to celebrate International Day of Peace. From September 20 to 26, 2020, JBers around the world were invited to reflect on what peace meant to them and how they were actively spreading peace in their local communities. This project also raised awareness on relevant topics concerning peace in their countries and provided a space for JBers to build relationships with one another.

For each day of the week, different topics regarding peace were tackled either through social media content or through sessions that fostered deeper discussions about the topic (all sessions were held twice to adapt to different timezones!). Participants were also put in small groups called "Peace Pals" where they participated in structured discussions on relevant issues about peace and justice.

The project was successful as it garnered 70+ participants from all over the world.
