Investing in Peace

Our event this year is on Saturday 22/9/2018
only one day after UN International Day of Peace , Peace One Day

as usual at Norwich Forum 9-4pm

Peace is priceless yet relatively costs very little and with immeasurable returns.

War achieves nothing and is vastly expensive

with no returns except bancruptcy, destruction, death, injury, orphans, refugees and injustice

the only ‘beneficiaries’ are arms manufacturers and traders

and these gain nothing either.

NPC&PC invites you to consider alternatives and a world without war as being the only realistic choice

and to invest in peace

someting we can all do

as opposed to

 mutual destruction.

your views and insights are invaluable

our event has something for all

no side wins a war

Peace is Achievable
