Peace Boat on its way to Cape Town

A group of 350 young people from countries around the world will dock at Cape Town's harbour next week aboard the Peace Boat. They aim to interact with local communities, spreading the message of peace and goodwill. The Peace Boat is operated by a Japanese-based non-governmental organisation. Spokesperson Clive Newman says they hope to establish ties with grassroots movements and NGOs in South Africa. They focus on human rights, sustainable development, arts and culture and environmental issues. It’s the Peace Boat’s eighth visit to Cape Town and it will be in port on Thursday and Friday.
