My wish is to bring people together in the spirit of unity and at the same time to encourage urbanites to enjoy a morning in the beauty of the outdoors! This is in conjunction with the UN International Day of Peace - I'd like Malaysia to join the many R&S groups around the world in displays of solidarity and friendship (and we are also making a giant dove puppet too!).
The Peace Picnic is a community bring n' share which is open to all. It is to promote camaraderie as well as an appreciation for nature. We will be gathering in the city's botanical gardens, a lush, green setting - perfect for a morning under the trees. The approach is that this is not a "formal" event and everyone is welcome, and that sharing (of mats, food, etc) in encouraged. Posters of the event have been circulating via social media along with directions to the event area and handy tips for the day. This event will be held on Sept 17th, the weekend before International Day of Peace. A few of us will be building the dove puppet and having everyone else join us as we "fly" it in the park!
