Peace and prosperity summit in Stoke-on-Trent aims to inspire

Stoke-on-Trent is hosting a national summit, ahead of World Peace Day.

The free event, taking place at the Moat House Hotel in Etruria tonight (17 September), is part of the Global Peace and Prosperity Initiative.

196 nations worldwide are part of the scheme and its founder and author Dr Paula Fellingham is flying in from the US to be one of the keynote speakers.

Staffordshire businesswoman Teejay Dowe (pictured), who is also England’s official Peace Ambassador, has organised the event.

She was chosen for the role based on the work she does with young people in the UK and around the world as part of Back on Track Teens, a company which delivers training courses to youngsters to increase their confidence and self-worth.

Teejay says that she wants the event to highlight the great work that is going on in the city, to inspire others.

She said: "Our focus is especially on young people, which I love.

"The event is about supporting people in the community, both young and old, to really discover who they are, and discover confidence, vision, direction, resilience, and kindness.

"We want to get people to have better prospects for jobs to earn a better living, and so they never have to worry about paying the bills - giving them peace of mind.

"As a city we’re not very good about shouting about our success but there are some truly inspirational individuals and organisations here that do huge amounts of work behind the scenes to help young people better themselves."

Paula Fellingham, Founder/Director of the Global Prosperity and Peace Initiative said: "Although I've been honoured to teach in 37 nations, speaking in Stoke-on-Trent will be one of the highlights of 2019 for me because of my love for the people in England.

"I will share with attendees exactly how - step by step - we can enjoy much more love, prosperity, and peace in our lives"
