Sweet Songs Collection no. 4: Seeds of Peace

Seeds of Peace fosters personal and interpersonal transformation in teens affected by conflict. An initiative of John Wallach, an American journalist, author and editor, the organization was founded in 1993 as a summer camp where children from opposite sides of conflict could get to know each other. As they share time together, the youngsters’ attitudes and perceptions change and they begin to respect and empathize with their peers. Leadership programs are then available in their communities to support their growth as peace builders.

There are now over 6,000 Seeds of Peace alumni uniquely positioned to lead change throughout the Middle East, South Asia, Europe, and the United States.

For a short video introduction to Seeds of Peace, please see the Sweet Songs page here.

Every week, it will provide a link to a post from someone who has addressed an important issue, stretched boundaries, provided perspective, insight or solutions – in other words, someone who has gone up the mountain and come back down again with something to share.
