Here are the plans of World Laughter Master Belachew Girma for this year's laughter for peace celebrations in Addis Ababa.

WLM Belachew is inviting people from around the world to build together a vision for peace through laughter for the next generations.

There are two key dates:
  • 30th October – World Laughter Pledge international conference
  • 31st October – Ethiopia National Laughter Day, bringing together thousands of schoolchildren and community leaders to celebrate laughter.
There is then a laughter tour of southern Ethiopia. 

Details below. 

Please let me know if you can come.  Also please offer feedback on the idea.  I shall be there from 29th October!

Best wishes
