Astronomy Aotearoa is holding a StarPeace event to celebrate the World Day of Peace.
September 21st 7pm to 11pm 1 Courtenay Place Wellington. Outside Sweet Mothers Kitchen.
Call Paul Moss on +64 21 266 6576 for assistance if you need to know about this event.
All welcome. Global information at http://www.starpeace.org/
In a world that we only hear the news of wars every now and then, 'PEACE' is not a dream. The International Day of Peace (Peace Day) is an opportunity for everyone to step forward and talk about friendships. This year, on September 21, StarPeace along with other peacemakers around the world will celebrate this day by organizing mutual public star parties near the borders of neighboring countries. We invite all of our ambassadors and coordinators to plan this day. One can reach the StarPeace stylesheet here.
The most effective way to hold a StarPeace event is to have two or more groups in neighboring countries, having star parties at the same time near their border. The other way, for those who may not find collaborators in their neighboring countries, is to hold only one star party near the border line.
The goal of StarPeace, apart from showing the beauties and wonders of the sky to the public, is to change their way of thinking toward the world by showing them being a small part of the universe. such attitude affects our lives positively and to act in a tranquil and modest manner. Then Peace is the fruit of this perspective."
