WHILE young­sters from around the world gather for the third an­nual World Al­liance of Re­li­gions’ Peace sum­mit in Seoul on Mon­day to ad­dress the North Korean nu­clear threat, Cape Town’s youth will be play­ing their part too.

The In­ter­na­tional Peace Youth Group, which pro­motes the im­por­tant role youth play in pro­mot­ing world peace, will be hold­ing a “peace demon­stra­tion” at the Cas­tle of Good Hope to­day from 10am, as a way of unit­ing against global threats to peace.

“We are all about young peo­ple com­ing to­gether to achieve world peace,” said the group’s re­gional co-or­di­na­tor, Cleo Baart­man. “We want to in­spire youth to leave be­hind a bet­ter world for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.”
