The March gathers the initiatives of local teams from different cities, associations, institutions and persons who want to support each other in their efforts to achieve common goals like nuclear disarmament, environmental consciousness, non-discrimination or nonviolence.
The 1st World March took place 10 years ago and travelled 90 countries for 90 days, with the participation of more than 3000 associations and institutions from all over the world. This 2nd one is now in its 132 day and still have 28 more ahead to travel Europe before ending up in Madrid on March 8, 2020.
This meeting was the first contact of what both parts hope to become a long-lasting relationship convinced that, as Mr. Gorbachev wrote to Sri Chinmoy, “there is only one way for us: the way of peaceful cooperation and friendship. Other way leads to abyss. We should face global challenges with open eyes and do everything to overcome them”.
