Online International Youth Peace Forum

Project Description

At the request of Sakuji Tanaka, President of Rotary International, Rotary District 7500 and eClub 7500 sponsored an International Youth Peace Forum with several groups of young people from around the world. The youth groups connected via the Internet to discuss World Peace and to advocate to their countries’ leaders to end war.

There were 3 ways to participate:

1. Local Rotarians, Interact Club members, friends, and family members joined at the auditorium of Lenape High School located at 235 Hartford Rd. in Medford, New Jersey.

2. Three international youth groups participated by video conferencing. The youth groups were able to interact with each other and discuss world peace. We had groups from Israel, the Philippines, and Serbia!
