Briefing on current projects and roles available.
Twalk in War Memorial Park
Notes about #PeaceTwalk
UNA Ambassadors needed to help with first #PeaceTwalk around the War Memorial Park at 13:00 on Sunday 11 November. The idea is to bring people together from different countries, communities, religions, ages etc and talk while they go for a walk. Talking is the first step in building peaceful relationships between people.
This is Remembrance Sunday so the park should be busy since there will be a ceremony.
In order to stimulate conversation Philip wants UNA Ambassadors to give short talks when we stop at locations with a connection with peace. He has created a guide to the route containing information on places related to peace. The information can be downloaded from
Rehearsal for PeaceTwalk
This will be held at 13:00 on Sunday 4 November. Meet in the Park & Ride in War Memorial Park. For a map see the above page
It was agreed that WhatsApp is the best medium to circulate messages since most students use it and it avoids email being labelled as Spam.
[Philip created this after the meeting]
The main event that needs publicity is the #PeaceTalk. Philip will create posters and fliers.
Help needed in distributing fliers. Contact Philip if you can help.
Religious and Community Groups
Philip has already talked to CARAG (Coventry Asylum & Refugee Action Group, see http://unacov.uk/coventry-asylum-refugee-action-group-carag/ for more information) and expects some asylum seekers to join the #PeaceTwalk, but more publicity is needed.
Philip suggested we try to contact religious groups and community groups.
