Peace Boat staff Jasna Bastic and co-founder and Director Yoshioka Tatsuya are in Belfast between May 28-30, 2013 to take part in the Nobel Women's Initiative Biennial Conference in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

On this historic occasion, all six Peace Laureates of the Nobel Women's Initiative have gathered, along with dozens of other activists, under the theme "Moving Beyond Militarism and War: Women Driven Solutions for a Non-Violent World."

On May 28, Jasna Bastic will host a Roundtable discussion on "Demilitarizing Education: Case Studies of What Works", and on May 30, Yoshioka Tatsuya will speak about Japan's peace constitution Article 9 in the Plenary Session "A World of Nonkilling: Powerful Responses to Existing & Looming Threats."

Also on May 30, Peace Boat's ship "Ocean Dream" will arrive in Belfast as part of the current 79th Global Voyage, giving participants a chance to see the reconciliation and community work being done on the ground in Belfast.

The conference can be followed @nobelwomen on Twitter using the hashtag #womenbeyondwar, at the Nobel Women's Initiative on Facebook and through the Women Beyond War blog.
