Our work to engage communities began in 2001 before the formal registration of Spirit of Peace as a charity. Much of this work was stimulated by visits to the UK by our international peace partners. Inspired by their work it became clear that communities over here wish to use similar means and methods to create more harmonious and flourishing communities in the UK.

The majority of our workshops, events and presentations have been undertaken on themes related to peace, nonviolence and global citizenship and learning from and about the situation in the Middle East. They have been carried out in the context of multi-ethnic and mixed cultural groups fostering understanding, dialogue, respect and co-operation within the groups present.
