Together for Peace 2020 at the United Nations Conference Centre

The Humanitarian Affairs Story

Humanitarian Affairs believes that a lasting peace is a sustainable
peace, which means respect for human rights, initiatives to the
reduction of poverty, and equal access to education and economic
opportunities for all.

The 2020 Peace Summit
Humanitarian Affairs Asia is hosting the 2nd Peace Summit of
Emerging Leaders at the United Nations Conference Centre Bangkok, Thailand from February 5 to 7, 2020. The conference will gather 500 young leaders from different parts of the world and give them an understanding and broader perspective on this vitally important subject. We want to empower young leaders to be a champion of peace.

Ilam School on campus for Cultural Day – 26 September

On Tuesday (26 September) Ilam School are holding their school Cultural Day and as part of this will hold a parade which finishes with a walk out the front gates of the school on Ilam Rd, a short walk along Kirkwood Ave and come in through the adjoining driveway between the school and Kirkwood Campus.

For this parade the children are strongly encouraged to dress up in clothing that reflects their heritage. This year they have 62 ethnicities taking part.

This year participants will return through the far University driveway (next to 24 Kirkwood Ave) and walk back through Kirkwood Campus along the main access walkway. This allows Kirkwood Intermediate to fully support us and it enables the school to share with the greater Ilam community and University of Canterbury where we have strong links. This walk is scheduled to commence at 10:00 a.m. and participants expect to be on campus at approximately 10:10 for about 10 minutes.
