India Peace Centre joins the global community in celebrating the 2019 International Day of Peace with the theme: “Climate Action for Peace” As in the past, the Bicycle Rally is being organised on Sept 21, 2019 to convey the message of peace to society.
Giving details of the programme, the Co-ordinator Dr Tejinder Singh Rawal said, “India Peace Centre Bicycle Rally has become a landmark event in the city for last many years, in which more than 300 cyclists participate every year. This year the Rally will be flagged off at 6.30 AM from India Peace Centre and will go through various parts of the city to reassemble at the statue of Mahatma Gandhi at Variety Square, and after garlanding the Father of the Nation, the Rally will continue and terminate at India Peace Centre. The event is open to all, and there are no registration charges. Certificate of Participation will be given to all completing the Rally.”
Dr Rawal added “The theme draws attention to the importance of combating climate change as a way to protect and promote peace throughout the world. Climate change causes clear threats to international peace and security. Natural disasters displace three times as many people as conflicts, forcing millions to leave their homes and seek safety elsewhere. The Stalinization of water and crops is endangering food security, and the impact on public health is escalating. The growing tensions over resources and mass movements of people are affecting every country on every continent. Peace can only be achieved if concrete action is taken to combat climate change.”
Registration for the Rally has started. For further details, interested candidates can contact on 9422101839
