Workshops to Create the 2022 Peace and Goodwill Message
The theme for the 2022 Peace and Goodwill Message is climate change.
In October and November 2021, a series of workshops were held to create the centenary Peace and Goodwill Message with students from Aberystwyth University.
The content of the workshops was created based on research on the climate emergency.
Here is a taste of the workshops:
- Q+A with Professor Gareth Wyn Jones and the Director of Friends of the Earth Cymru, Haf Elgar, discussing topics such as climate and conflict, campaigns, environmental policies and COP26.
- Talk by Alejandra Arias from Force of Nature, an organisation that empowers young people to turn their eco-anxiety into agency. Go here for their website.
- Welcoming the students of the Norwegian University of Life Sciences to a virtual discussion on the climate emergency between both universities.
This is the only message of its kind in the world! Continuing through world wars and significant changes in communications, from Morse Code to radio and the mailing service, to today's digital networks.
The theme for the 2020 Urdd Peace and Goodwill Message was a call for the world to wake up, following the global emergency of the COVID-19 pandemic.
