Hi Usa Peacebuilding Conference says
10th Annual Hostelling International San Diego Peacebuilding Conference
An International Experience Close To Home

When: Wednesday, September 21, 2016 5:30 – 8:00pm
Where: Hall of Nations, Balboa Park 2301 Pan American Rd W, San Diego, CA 92101

This year's Hostelling International USA (HI USA) Peacebuilding Conference will focus on encouraging San Diegans to recognize our unique border area as a place to explore global awareness and cultural exchange. Speakers, including Derrik Chin, founder of Turiste Libre, will share reasons why they promote cross-border engagement. Refreshments will be provided. There is a $5.00 registration fee.

The 2016 Peacebuilding Conference is being held on the International Day of Peace and in conjunction with HI’s Sleep for Peace program.

The United Nations has designated the 21st of September as the International Day of Peace, providing an opportunity for all humanity to come together, in spirit and action, to forward the conditions of peace. Since 2013, HI USA has chosen to be involved through our Sleep for Peace program. Sleep for Peace is a global initiative which reinforces the message that hostelling contributes to building peace on a day-to-day basis through the benefits of travel and intercultural exchange. It has grown to include 31 countries, over 140 hostels and nearly 3,000 guests and local communities.

Information will be posted on these sites as it becomes available:
