More about the event:
In a collaborative effort, diverse faith groups have come together to organise and lead a silent contemplative Peace Walk in London. Organised in response to escalating violence and warfare worldwide, particularly as occurring in Palestine and Israel, the event underscores the pressing need to advocate for peace amid the rising challenges of hatred, anger, destruction, displacement, suffering and increasing loss of life.
Facilitated by Plum Village UK and the Quakers in Britain, this initiative embodies a shared commitment to non-violence, reconciliation,and peace, reflecting the spiritual and ethical values of all spiritual Communities. Walking together is a powerful reminder that sustainable peace requires engaged action rooted in understanding, compassion, love and justice.
The silent vigil walk transcends religious and cultural boundaries, uniting us all in common aspiration for a world built on peace. Peace transcends words and walking together fosters the nature of our interconnectedness.
Please make and bring a white flower as a symbol of your commitment to peace. The act of making a white flower is tangible expression of personal commitment, with every one of us contributing to the collective tapestry of cultivating a more peaceful world.
This initiative aligns with the “Together for Humanity” campaign, transforming the walk into a broader movement that transcends religious boundaries.
We will assemble in Trafalgar Square, to commence at 12pm with short opening prayers offers by faith leaders. We will then walk slowly from Trafalgar Square to Parliament Square and back.

- Make & bring/wear a white flower for peace (please see this video with inspiration how to make paper flowers)
- Cultural/religious/faith clothing welcome
- Dress suitably for the weather and walking
