Do you know of someone or an organisation that has done something to promote reconciliation or peace this year? Nominations are now sought for the WPWP peace award , to be presented during the Week of Prayer for World Peace in October 2018. The Award carries a value of £500.
Nominations can come from any individual or group. Submissions in the form of a letter describing the nominee’s contribution to peace and justice issues. The Award was established by the Week of Prayer for World Peace (WPWP) to recognise significant contributions by individuals, organisations or projects in furthering peace, justice and reconciliation. The Award seeks to focus on grassroots initiatives. It enables otherwise untold stories to be told and honoured and to inspire others to work for peace.
Named in honour of Revd. Gordon Wilson and Revd. Sidney Hinkes, both former Chairs of the WPWP, the Award is made annually. This year the Award is sponsored by the Anglican Pacifist Fellowship.
