Say HI for Peace Sept 21

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 πŸ˜‰

Help us inspire the world and share your peace pledge!

Our 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.

Need some Help?

Here are some of our favourite ways to build peace

  • Connect with others, be the first to reach out, and create and maintain friendships and/or partnerships.
  • Get curious, and educate yourself about other cultures, past and present inequalities and injustices, and topics such as equality and wellbeing.
  • Seek a different point of view and aim to deeply understand it.
  • Promote a friend, colleague, other association, or business within your community.
  • Support peace initiatives such as Say HI for Peace πŸ˜‰ or other local groups or projects.
  • Embrace mindfulness and work towards your own inner peace.
