Peace and Love in Society (PALS) through collaboration with the Flow Foundation live-streamed its annual Peace Day concert which promotes conflict resolution in schools last Tuesday (March 7).

This year’s Peace Day theme was ‘Be The Peace’, which encouraged everyone to embody the principles of a peacemaker in order to positively impact society. In addition to the hundreds of students in attendance, schools across the island joined the Peace Day concert livestream for its powerful messages and great entertainment.

Janilee Abrikian, executive director of PALS said, “the support of the internet service was of tremendous value, it allowed for posterity as some schools had a clash and could not join the livestream, but they could go on at a later time and view the concert.”

“More importantly, the internet is an invaluable tool that allows us to spread the message of peace to more people and it is a catalyst for positive change in our society,” she continued.

For almost 30 years, PALS has been an advocate for a more peaceful society and this year it partnered with Project STAR to take its Peace Day Concert activities to Calabar Infant and Primary School.

LeVaughn Flynn, Flow’s public relations manager, pointed out that, “the Flow technology plays an important role in society and supports social development through interconnectedness and the PALS concert is a great example of how we live our philosophy of connecting communities and changing lives”.
