2021's Peace and Goodwill Message
Every year since 1922, the young people of Wales have created a message of peace and friendship to share with young people around the world. This year, the Peace and Goodwill Message focused on Equality for Women.
Equality for women is key to creating inclusive, open and prosperous societies, and the 2021 Peace and Goodwill Message focuses on this important issue, highlighting the inequalities that women still face worldwide.
2021's Peace and Goodwill Message was launched in video form on the 18th of May. Diolch to Swansea University students for creating the message with us this year and to Gwennan Mair for leading interesting and engaging sessions on the subject.
