Aiming to 'Reflect on 2021 - Plan for 2022' we gathered a range of our activities and branches to finish the year together. With Covid restrictions growing we reduced the in - person numbers by increasing our online involvement. From 2 pm - 4 pm Saturday, December 11th, the speech videos are being uploaded according to the order of presentations.
We are grateful for all those who gave their amazing support during this year. The Peace Council is an annual coming together of the branches and the areas of UPF activity across the UK. It has been a strange and tragic year. Most of our activities have been online. We began by sharing the highlights of the 2021 events and the development of certain projects we are planning for the future. We brought UPF international news as well featuring the many developments that took place during 2021.

Leading up to this programme there were small groups planning different events and activities for 2022. We heard from these groups both in relation to their activities during the year and to highlight the activities that are to happen in 2022. We presented Ambassador for Peace awards during the afternoon. Please see the programme below and the 2022 Calendar.
