Description

 

 

Welcome to the PEACE SOCIETY!

 

"Bring people together
Work towards peace"

 

Established in October, 2014 by a group of peace study students, the PEACE SOCIETY brings passionate students together with practitioners and academics in the peace fields to a create space to meet, integrate and enjoy their university experience together. As a departmental society, we seek to empower both graduate and undergraduate students across all stages to become more engaged in their studies and with their fellow students.

 

Peace is a calling, and it relies on the initiative of those willing to pursue it. As such, the PEACE SOCIETY serves as a vehicle for students to further their education, get to know each other and explore professional opportunities to work towards peace. The PEACE SOCIETY invites students to pursue their interests through a wide range of supported programming such as formal academic panels of experts in the field, roundtable forums and discussions, film screenings, practical workshops, networking events, social gatherings, protests on important issues and fundraising activities. We even have our own football team who defends peace agaist London's MA war programme at the Tolstoy Cup every year. 

Throughout the last years with full support of the Peace Division, the society has established excellent connections with the Peace Studies administration, international organisations and local community groups.

 

This year the Peace Society is organised in internal groups of members with similar intersts who are oragnising events and activities around it. Our current activity groups are Art and Peace, Clean our Streets, (Cultural exchange with Chinese Society), Debating, Environment and Climate Justice, Football Team, (Mindfulness and Inner Peace), Peace Education, (Refugee Action) and Sport Development and Peace.

 

Join us and become a member of the PEACE SOCIETY to exchange and expand your knowledge, ideas and experiences around peace. Get actively involved and create activities together to inspire others.
