The aim of this project is to promote and encourage a culture of peace among the young persons in Barbados by influencing their behaviour, in order for them to approach potentially upsetting stimuli with reasonable responses, avoiding violence in the process. By extension, the project is intended to counteract the recent rise of violence we have witnessed throughout the year, which includes but is not limited to: gun violence and physical altercations. The project will culminate during the week of International Day of Peace, September 21st.
- To promote peace awareness to the general public in Barbados.
- To educate young people on how to avoid and resolve conflict.
- Reduce the amount of physical altercations among children in schools.
- Form a social media gathering geared towards a more peaceful community.
