sleep-for-peaceDue to its success in 2013, more than 20 countries with a Hostelling International (HI) presence joined in this year’s celebration.

Sleep for Peace recognizes HI USA’s enduring belief in the power of travel to foster a deeper understanding of people, places and the world around, which leads to a more tolerant world. Since HI is recognized by UNESCO as a peace-building organization, it was a natural fit to rally participation across borders. Participating countries included Brazil, Costa Rica, Scotland, and Spain.

HI hostels hosted celebrations as unique as their destinations, inviting guests and the community to engage in dialogue and gain a new perspective on global issues and world cultures. Guests staying at HI USA hostels on September 21, were invited to engage in additional activities, including dinners, film viewings, city tours, and more.
