WALK FOR PEACE

Peace Museum Vienna Walk

HARMONY AND UNITY IN VIENNA



The Peace Heroes Walk Around the World is an common initiative of Peace Museum Vienna. The mission of the walk is to inspire and educate a new generation of peace heroes. The walk strives to unify diverse groups of people around ideals that all peace heroes have in common: recognition of the interconnections, promotion of justice, rejection of vengeance and fostering reconciliation. Lifting up the stories of peace heroes and celebrating the ideals that guide them helps inspire and educate a new generation of peace leaders. The walk is neither a march nor a protest. Organizers and participants do not take positions on current conflicts anywhere in the world; instead, they work to bridge differences among people who share a desire to create a culture of peace and nonviolence.

As the Dayton International Peace Museum defines it the Peace Heroes Walk Around the World, a family-friendly, educational event designed to promote peace literacy (i.e. the art of living peaceably) through the stories of peace heroes. The Walk’s vision is a more peaceful world where nonviolence is a way of life. As part of the International Network of Museums for Peace, Peace Museum Vienna will organise the first Peace Heroes Walk in Europe, in Vienna. The idea is to create teams which would be promoting their Peace Heros live. During the course of the walk every member will have the chance to interact with other team participants learn about other peace heroes lives. The goal of the walk is to create a friendly enviroment to create dialogue and common understanding. At the end of the walk several workshops will be offered about any particular Peace Heroes, conflict resolution, Human Rights, arts, activities for children, etc.

A Peace Hero is often an everyday person who accepts risk and succeeds in making the world a less violent and more just place. We are particulary interested in promoting national Peace Heroes, to recognize their live and work among the international community and the Austrian community. The selected Peace Heroes have to recognize the following Peace Hero Ideals:

  • Recognizes Interconnectedness
  • Promotes Justice
  • Rejects Vengeance

  • WALK NOW !
