Description


INSPIRE | EQUIP | CONNECT


Connect with like-minded women in the UK and be part of a movement that has a passionate interest in seeing women enabled as peacemakers across the globe. This series give women an understanding of Creators of Peace in the UK. You are warmly invited to join an eight-week evening series with women from all backgrounds, ages, cultures who are seeking the opportunity to become more empowered, inspired, and hopeful in our current global climate. Come participate, learn, discuss, grow, share your story, and explore what it means to be a creator of peace in your own lives, families, communities and nations.

Peace Circles are run by trained facilitators for small groups of women who can talk in confidence and explore the roots of peace. CoP UK aims to connect and inspire existing peace builders, build just, caring and inclusive communities for all and provide a space for self-reflection. We believe that ‘peace starts with me’ and that an individual can be a powerful agent for positive change in society once she has begun building peace in herself.
