Today is the International Day of Peace. Since 2007 Roots for Reconciliation is the YMCA Europe flagship programme successfully promoting youth activism for peace.

The International Day of Peace, September 21, provides an opportunity for all humanity to come together, in spirit and in action, to forward the ideals of and conditions for peace. Roots for Reconciliation is a project working for peace, reconciliation and justice since 2007, involving more than 2,000 young people from more than 40 countries.
