Reiki Home in collaboration with Initiatives of Change and Creators of Peace, and the Trinidad & Tobago Indigenous People is hosting a conference in Trinidad and Tobago in January 2018. The conference focus is Building Peace, Healing Ourselves, and Healing the Earth. The goal is to bring together people who are making a difference around the world to facilitate an exchange of ideas, to showcase good practices globally and locally, and to build on positive trends.

Countries around the globe have agreed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) consisting of 17 goals which include: Ensuring healthy lives and promoting the wellbeing of all people, Protecting and caring for the earth, and Promoting peaceful, just societies.

The expressed commitment to, and focus on, these interconnected goals is timely. Individuals, organizations and governments are taking positive actions that are having a noticeable impact. These initiatives represent models of positive change to be shared and replicated globally.

Who should participate?
