On its eighth year now, the School of Education (SED) celebrated Peace Days 2019, with the theme Climate Action for Peace.
The first day started with a thanksgiving mass followed by the symbolic release of doves as a symbolic gesture of peace and love. An exhibit was also opened showcasing infographics, artworks, and other display materials prepared by SED students.
In connection with this year’s theme, a Peace Forum was held. The speakers were: Mr. Ludwig Federigan from the Climate Change Comission; Ms. Ninia Dela Cruz, IBON Foundation; and Dr. Jayeel Cornelio, Ateneo de Manila University.
The attendees were the students from each department of HAU as well as the representatives of different schools in Pampanga. Contests on poster making and essay writing were also held.
The United Nation’s International Day of Peace is celebrated on September 21 each year and observed as a day of global ceasefire and non-violence.
