Wales’ National Garden of Peace was established by International Youth Service, CVS and UNA Exchange founder Robert Davies in 1988. A time capsule was buried by 8 year old Richard Mears of Roath Park Primary School, UNA’s youngest member, with 93 year old Irene Chamberlain who was part of the 1938 opening. Nearly 50 memorials to Welsh peacemakers today each tell an amazing story of their own.
30 years later, we gather to rededicate the Peace Garden, unveiling a new youth-designed sculptural mosaic for a new generation of internationalists, and a Peace Gardens Memorials Trail. Children will bury a Time Capsule for the Temple’s 100th Anniversary in 2038, and inside the Temple will be family fun activities, and a volunteering marketplace for youth placements, students and international opportunities.
