The Language Studies Department invites you to celebrate the International Day of Peace with us on Thursday, September 21 at the Samson Patio from 10am-12pm. This event will include short speeches and reflections on peace in multiple languages. Cohorts from Arabic, French, English, Japanese, and Spanish will be presenting in their target languages. The event is open to the campus at large and we welcome all students to share how to say “peace” in their native languages. The UN theme for this internationally recognized day is “Actions for Peace: Our Ambitions for the #Global Goals.”

We will hold a Peace Pole dedication in the Our Green Thumb Garden on Van Buren St., starting promptly at 1pm.

The International Peace Day event at MIIS is co-sponsored by the KWD Collaborative on Conflict Transformation and the Language Studies Department at MIIS. For more information, you may contact: Prof Marie Butcher mbutcher@middlebury.edu
