HarborLAB and the Buddhist Council of New York invite you to celebrate the UN International Day of Peace (http://www.un.org/en/events/peaceday/) with a day of meditation, yoga, teachings, dance, crafts, and kayaking!

Bonus: We'll try to partner with companies to educate on UN International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer:

The fun-filled and fulfilling day at Gantry Plaza State Park culminates in prayers and reflections from interfaith clergy, civic leaders, and scientists, followed by a beautiful floating lantern ceremony on the East River, across from the United Nations.
