Austria 20 November: Klöch - border Austria-Slovenia

in 2007 two communities, Cankova in Slovenia and Klöch in Austria, inaugurated a Peace Bridge connecting the two countries - dedicated to the founder of the World Harmony Run, Peace-Philosopher and Athlete, Sri Chinmoy.

...two teams, one from Slovenia and one from Austria, headed for the bridge to meet for the annual celebration of the event...

...the Slovenian party awaits the runners...

The two WHR - running teams met on the bridge, led by the mayors of Cankova and Klöch.

..exchange of the flaming peace torches...

...in front of the dedication - plaque on the bridge...

... a group picture...

..together we ran to the meeting place...

...standing for the national anthems...

...children performed for us...

...both mayors signed a traditional ceremony book...

...a hearty buffet and hot drinks...

...who cares for the cold? Its a great day!

Finally all people passed the flaming torch around and offered a wish for Prace and Harmony in the world! Our World Harmony Run Song ended the ceremony...

Thank you Cankova and Klöch for this really heartfelt event!


The World Harmony Run proudly supports the International Year of Youth (IYY) and the International Year of Forests (IYF) proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly.

See the recent Youtube video on African experience which illustrates IYY slogan "Our Year Our Voice"  International Year of Youth - Zambia World Harmony. They surprisingly mention Presidents and UN Secretary-General in a unique way!
