Taplow Court hosting Proposals for Peace talk

A buddhist leader’s ideas on how the world’s populations can live together more peacefully are being presented to the public at an open meeting at Taplow Court next week.

Daisako Ikeda, president of the Buddhist society Soka Gakkai International (SGI), writes his so-called Proposals for Peace papers each year for the United Nations, with ideas of how people can, on a personal and government level, lead to a more peaceful existence.

Robert Harrap, general director of SGI-UK, based at Taplow Court, Berry Hill, is leading a talk on the proposals on Thursday, April 28.

“We have had members invite their family, friends and colleagues along to the event, but anyone is welcome,” said Mr Harrap.

The event will be covering the role of civil society in grappling with global issues, including humanitarian crises; developing belief in the inherent dignity of life; ideas for action on humanitarian aid, ecological integrity, disarmament and the prohibition of nuclear weapons.

The Proposals for Peace talk is free to attend and starts at 7.30pm. No booking is required.
