Join us on Sunday September 13, 2015 as Seeds, Parents, Counselors and friends walk across the Memorial State Bridge in Augusta to the State House to raise awareness and support for Seeds of Peace and its work in Maine and around the world.
Walkers will convene at the New Cony High School (60 Pierce Dr., Augusta, ME) Sunday morning at 11:00am for opening ceremonies. The walk will begin at 11:30am, ending at the Statue of Samantha Smith.
Seeds of Peace needs your help to spread the word and raise awareness for its vital mission – to inspire and cultivate new generations of global leaders in communities divided by conflict. We equip them with the skills and relationships they need to accelerate social, economic, and political changes essential for peace.

About Seeds of Peace:
In the face of some of the world’s most intractable conflicts, Seeds of Peace Peace inspires and cultivates new generations of global leaders in communities divided by conflict. We equip them with the skills and relationships they need to accelerate social, economic, and political changes essential for peace.
Treaties are negotiated by governments; peace is made by people. Since 1993, Seeds of Peace has set the standard in international peace-building by providing exceptional young people and educators from regions of conflict with an otherwise impossible opportunity to meet their historic enemies face-to-face at our International Camp in Maine.
We build on their extraordinary and critical relationships and understanding through year-round local programs that focus on the core leadership capacities needed to advance peace. There are now over 5,600 Seeds and Educators from 27 countries who prove that solutions exist, peace is possible, and there is reason to have hope for a better future.
