Out of the loss of a generation, how did our great-grandparents seek to build a better world? When after 11.11 the world said ‘never again’ to war, how did they take action from local to global? Can their stories inspire a ‘new generation of internationalists’ to shape Wales' role in the world into the future?

A Heritage Lottery Funded project marking the WW100 Centenary as part of the Cymru’n Cofio / Wales Remembers programme, Wales for Peace is a grassroots communities and volunteering initiative led from 2014-19 by the Welsh Centre for International Affairs (at Wales' Temple of Peace), in partnership with: 

  • National Library of Wales
  • National Museum of Wales 
  • People’s Collection Wales 
  • Urdd Gobaith Cymru 
  • UNA Exchange 
  • Aberystwyth University 
  • David Davies Memorial Institute
  • Cardiff University
  • Wales Peace Institute Initiative
  • Cymdeithas y Cymod / Fellowship of Reconciliation

Over 100 community organisations, partners and 750 volunteers have worked with WCIA, to explore Wales' Peace Heritage and its relevance to the world today - these collections on PCW give an insight into some of the material they have unearthed. WCIA will be continue to manage and support additions to this account under WCIA's new 'Global Action Programme' for 2019-24.
