On the next International Day of Peace (September 21, 2018) a World Peace Flame will be lit in the Thalden Pavilion at the Sustainability Center of the Southern Oregon University (SOU).
A delegation from the WPF Foundation and state & city dignitaries, will come to Ashland for the lighting ceremony. The eternal lantern flame will be placed near the base of the obelisk encased in glass. It will be flanked by two 24-foot cedar carvings by local Native American sculptor, Russell Beebe.
This WPF Monument is surrounded by Walker Elementary School, Ashland Middle School, Ashland High School, and Southern Oregon University. As such, this World Peace Flame will provide hope and inspiration to the future leaders of this area.
