Join us and make a difference this Peace Day by taking a Say HI for Peace Pledge.
Take a moment to think about the ways you already contribute to peace. It could be as simple as being the first to reach out and make new friends, learning about different cultures and injustices, or promoting positive initiatives in your community. Whatever it is, let’s turn it into a personal peace pledge/promise. We even have some examples below 😉
Help us inspire the world and share your peace pledge!
At HI hostels we pledge to
Support diversity, inclusivity, learning and understanding through our online platforms, providing a safe space for all to share their traditions, stories, and experiences.
Promote responsible, regenerative, and mindful travel.
Inspire our global community of travelers to think about their impact and to become ambassadors of peace.
Ensure our hostels are safe and inclusive to all.
