All Rotarians Welcome
Wednesday, April 27th, 2022 at 9am
Balboa Park, near the International Houses
The Rotarians from the E-Club of San Diego Global of San Diego have been working on putting together this peace pole for the past four years.  Along with the San Diego Downtown Breakfast Club they want to dedicate it at Balboa Park to raise awareness for Global Peace.  With the war in Ukraine giving attention to world conflict, this is a very timely event, sending a message in 12 languages “May Peace Prevail on Earth”. 
Our current Rotary Peace Scholar at the Kroc School -- Ms. Nurjamal Shadieva from Krygyzstan, who is enrolled in the MA program in Conflict Management and Resolution -- will be speaking at the event, sharing why she wanted to pursue this graduate education in peace, what she is learning, and how she plans to use it.
Inspired by the International Peace Pole project, the Balboa Park Peace Pole will join Peace poles in more than 180 countries that carry this same message. Other notable locations for Peace Poles include the North Magnetic Pole, Hiroshima Peace Memorial, Egyptian Pyramids in Giza, and the Aiki Shrine in Iwama, Japan.
