Truce Inspire Mark for London Peace Network

The London Peace Network (led by LBFN) was awarded London 2012’s Truce Inspire Mark a while ago, but today we had confirmation that the mark can be used on the website.

Seb Coe, Chair of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games said:

‘The London Peace Network is encouraging religious, multifaith and peace-making groups across the capital to fulfil their potential.

I am proud that with the help of partners such as the London Boroughs Faiths Network, we are delivering our vision to use the power of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games to boost participation in peace-building activities and to leave a rich legacy into 2013 and beyond.’

 

As part of the 2012 Hours Against Hate Coalition, we are also pleased to sport the 2012 Hours logo and the international Olympic Truce Symbol – which is widely recognised around the world. 

 

Faiths Forum for London is a key partner in 2012 Hours Against Hate and is looking for twelve volunteers from at least four different religious groups to volunteer twenty hours in charities of faith communities different from their own – a great idea and a unique opportunity during this Olympic year.  Find out more here.

A new Facebook page for the Olympic Truce was launched last week and already has thousands of members from around the world contributing on the subject of peace – well worth a visit.

Check your faith forum’s details under Borough Links and send in your peace-building plans for the summer so that they can all be included in the picture carousel at the top of the website and in Coming Up.
