About the World Peace Caravan

Because the next generation of leaders- today’s youth- are critical for the chance of finding peace in our time, the World Peace Caravan is fostering an online Youth Community to provide young people a global platform through which to share their ideas, voice their opinions, educate and be educated. Participants in the Youth Community will ideally form strong networks and worldwide friendships to help promote a more peaceful planet. Furthermore, from this Youth Community, an international World Peace Caravan Youth Delegation of twelve youths, ages 16-24, will be selected to spearhead the caravan and contribute their voice to the World Peace Caravan Peace and Health Conference.

Over 3,000 years ago, the Queen of Sheba led a 750 camel caravan over the Ancient Frankincense Trail carrying her peace offerings on her ships of the desert to King Solomon in Jerusalem. The World Peace Caravan 2015 will engage participants physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually in a once-in-a-lifetime adventure as it retraces Queen Sheba’s steps on a grand quest for peace today.

The caravan will begin with a pre-launch celebration in Petra, Jordan on December 15, 2015, and depart on December 16. Participants will travel through Jordan for five days and nights, camping along the way while exchanging multi-cultural activities including music, dance and educational seminars and exploring historical and religious sites.

The caravan will break on December 20 for a high-level, interactive World Peace Caravan Peace and Health Conference at the King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre on the shore of the Dead Sea in Jordan on December 21 and 22. The conference of invited international peace advocates will focus on health, education, and the role of women and youth in peacemaking.

On December 23, the caravan will cross the border into Israel for a visit to Jericho and a two day trek through the Judean desert, arriving in Bethlehem on December 25. On Saturday, December 26, the caravan will culminate with a Peace Walk into Jerusalem and the blockbuster World Peace Caravan Concert for Peace. Internationally renowned musical artists will mix with musicians from around the globe for a night of once-in-a-lifetime performances at the new state-of-the art Jerusalem Arena. The evening’s festivities will be broadcast and streamed around the world.

The WORLD PEACE CARAVAN is founded by the international D. Gary Young Foundation, a 501 © (3) non-profit organization. The foundation is looking for like-minded partners who share in the vision of a world at peace.
