"Peace to the World": a 12-hour moment of reflection in Ieper

The city of Ieper staged a 12-hour peace event on Saturday, called "Peace to the World". The initiative was the final stage of Gone West, the cultural and artistic remembrance programme for the Great War. Actor and musician Wim Opbrouck acted as the curator, and got 100 young people from 21 different countries singing a peace message on stage, in an impressive display (the singer at the start of the video is Axl Peleman; the voice of curator Wim Opbrouck can be heard in the background).
