HI Iceland celebrates Sleep for Peace
Hostelling International´s peace event “Sleep for Peace” is celebrated annually in Iceland
Sleep for Peace is an annual global initiative launched by HI USA in 2013, in recognition of the United Nation’s International Day of Peace.
Sleep for Peace reinforces the message that accessibility to travel and youth hostelling contributes daily to peace-building by promoting travel and intercultural understanding amongst young people at home and abroad.
HI Iceland took part by offering peaceful concerts, Peace Yoga, peace programme for children, screening of the documentary Everyday Rebellion about peaceful protest and many hostels around Iceland participated by lighting a candle at 8 o´clock every evening and informing their guests about the event and it mission.
