24 Hours of Bravos for Peace Initiatives!

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Dec. 30, 2015) - The sad events of 2015 have brought to light a familiar observation: acts of violence are greatly over-hyped in the media, especially when compared to initiatives for peace. If violence constantly goes viral, can't we also make actions for peace contagious?

Celebrate the New Year under the sign of peace, participate!

Montreal, December 30, 2015 - This year, for the third edition of "24 Hours for World Peace", the public is invited to encourage, to applaud and to share the peace initiatives of their choice! On January 1st 2016, a wide range of peace initiatives from around the world, on both local and international scales, will be available online, inviting everyone to celebrate the New Year under the sign of peace.

The initiatives that receive enough support, in the form of comments that add up to 100 lines of text, will automatically be nominated for the Public Peace Prize.

Public recognition for peacemakers

The Public Peace Prize, an initiative sustained by simple world citizens, is the only distinction for peace in the world that is based on the public's choice. This citizens' distinction makes it possible to make better known the people and the initiatives, visible or invisible, who are working for reconciliation and peace. Last year, the twelve finalists attracted the attention and the support of more than 20 000 visitors from more than twenty countries.

This year, the "24 Hours for World Peace" event will once again be housed on the Public Peace Prize website, since the two activities are jointed.
