Peace Boat will set sail from Tokyo, Japan on July 14,
2004 to travel around the world on its 46th
Voyage. This northern hemisphere journey will take 98
days, and the ship will dock at 21 ports across Asia,
Africa, Europe, and the Americas.
Highlights of the voyage include visits to:
- Athens, Greece on the Opening Day of the 2004 Olympic
Games. Peace Boat will be joining with the people
of Greece to urge the world to observe the traditional
practice of the ‘Olympic Truce’: a cease-fire
which begins seven days before and ends seven days
after the Olympics.
- New York City, USA on the third anniversary of
the September 11 terrorist attacks and Peace Boat
will join in solidarity with local peace organizations
to mourn the victims of the tragedy and to share visions
for how international civil society can work towards
a peaceful and just world.
- Sri Lanka and Northern Ireland where Peace Boat
will visit community groups to explore civil society
perspectives on conflict resolution and peace.
- Eritrea and Colombia where Peace Boat will look
at projects working towards sustainable development.
