This evening I attended the 'Global Citizens for Peace' event at the Civic Hall...

"Never doubt that a small group of
committed people can change the world.
Indeed, it's the only thing that ever does."

Education Leeds and Together for Peace have been working in partnership with PeaceJam since 2006 an this year 50 young people and colleagues from Abbey Grange, Brigshaw, Garforth, Intake, Prince Henry's and South Leeds High Schools attended an international symposium for Youth and Peace in Los Angeles with seven international Nobel Peace Laureates including Desmond Tutu.

Over the last seven wonderful years here in Leeds we have transformed learning in our schools and built brilliant learning places. What PeaceJam shows is that together, if we believe it, we can change the world.
