A conference on Small Action, Big Impact took place at the University of Southampton on Saturday 18th February 2017. It was an all-day conference organised by Alicia Tang of Southampton Hub and the core theme of the conference was sustainable development. There were many presentations on peace, development and environmental concerns and violation of Human Rights.
Vijay Mehta, Chair of Uniting for Peace spoke on 4D for World Peace, 4D standing for Disarmament, Demilitarisation, Development and Democracy. Before Vijay’s lecture, a film, “Change the World,” was shown to the audience. A vibrant Q/A session followed the lecture.
Vijay took lots of literature and books at Southampton and set up a stall in which Shanti and him distributed literatures to students. It was an exciting networking opportunity, discussing the problems and solutions of building a peaceful world.
