- Organize a soccer tournament called “PEACE FOR A BETTER FUTURE”.
This will allow the teams of Benin and Togo to compete for two months for a twinning of the two countries and raise awareness of the principles of non-violent action.
- Reach enough schools and organize games. We will plan the steps to attract more people.
- Sensitize the media so that they dedicate spaces for spreading non-violence and the actions that must be carried out to cultivate peace in the world.
- Close this tour with a playful activity with invited artists and the realization of peace symbols that will be central to us.
Note: We would like the global coordination of the Second World March to facilitate our work in the field helping us to have:
- Official documents that we could show if necessary so as not to confuse our approach with a disturbance of public order, since all countries are in tension and the authorities suspect everything.
- Send a letter to each state to explain the project.
- Find the necessary equipment to carry out this journey.
With great joy we have welcomed this noble project that we want to be a success.

In Athens there has been a first meeting for the 2 World March with 50 people.
They are translating the brochure into Greek.
The cities of Trieste, Vicenza, Brescia, Alto Verbano - Varese, Milan, Turin, Genoa, Ventimiglia, Florence, Perugia-Assisi, Livorno, Rome, Cagliari, Avellino, Naples, Reggio Calabria, Palermo participate.
We will try to cover the cities of the 1 World March and some others.
For this we propose to divide the EB into two parts arriving in Italy to Trieste the 26 / 2 / 2020 (Trieste is nuclear port, near the Base of the Air Force Aviano with 40 atomic weapons)
Starts in Trieste - Vicenza (US military headquarters Ederle and AFRICOM) - Brescia (near Ghedi Air Force Base with 20 atomic weapons) - Alto Verbano - Varese - Milan - Turin-Genoa (exit Italy 3/3/2020 towards Ventimiglia-Nizza)
North North Route
It starts in Trieste - Florence - Perugia - Assisi - Livorno (nuclear port, near the US military headquarters Camp Darby) - Rome - Cagliari (the largest military shooting ranges in Europe) - Avellino-Naples (nuclear port, Joint Force Command from NATO) - Reggio Calabria - Palermo (departure 3/3/2020 towards Barcelona).
Another possible convergent route
Puglia - Brindisi (nuclear port) to the Middle East (Lebanon) - Cyprus (possible passage on the Green Line) - It is being considered whether to continue to Greece and the Balkans where he will meet with the World Base Team in Rijeka (Croatia), the Capital European Culture 2020 or rejoin Spain.
We are trying to contribute from Italy to find participants for the Base Team in order to cover the proposed path even more completely (and not only).
Mediterranean, Sea of Peace
In the framework of the Second World March, we are promoting the "Mediterranean, Sea of Peace" campaign.
Towards the end of October, a boat will depart from Genoa and will touch Nice, Barcelona, Tunis, Palermo, Reggio Calabria, Cagliari, Livorno and events will be organized in the Sea Museums of the different cities.
Meetings have been held with the Secretariat of State of the Vatican dealing with three proposals on our side:

The Journey for Peace of the Western Mediterranean ending in Genoa that will pass through Civitavecchia to bring to the Vatican (or its locations in Rome) the exhibition «Flower of beauty of the sea», the photographic exhibition on the flora of the Mediterranean seabed.
Your exhibition will be an opportunity for a comparative meeting on the human ecology of the Mediterranean.
It will be an event from the end of October to the beginning of November of 2019.
There will be a greeting to a group of people from the Base Team who travel the world and it is possible to realize a human symbol for peace and non-violence by young people from different communities.
With the presence of a delegation, in which Small Footprints will participate. Expected date: end of February / 2020.
Interreligious conference against war and non-violence
The Second World March in its journey will find different secular and religious realities, gathering experiences, testimonies and people who could meet in the spring of 2020 in the Vatican.
It could be an opportunity to get to know those reference figures about non-violence who do not listen to each other or ignore their non-violent side, like Jesus.
At the end of August of 2019, together with other groups and publics
It could create a moment to be received by the Holy Father (Pope Francis), who will meet with an international delegation (restricted) in which he could give a message to undertake the trip.

The web is designed so that sections can be enabled by countries, including cities thus facilitating the types of coordination in different regions.
We have a team to support the assembly and content of the web. We invite interested parties to participate.
We aim to activate them and make them more dynamic.
We have 4 information channels from the Second World March on Telegram to inform.
There are only important issues and the history of everything that happened from the beginning is kept, also visible to the new ones who join the channel.
They will have several administrators per language.
We recommend creating a group per continent for quick and current information (eg. They have already worked in Europe and in the South American March).
A guide for the use of the group will be prepared so that it is operational and looking for that it is not saturated, self-moderated with simple rules with 1 or 2 administrators per country.
We try to reinforce the profile we have of the World March on Facebook with this single entry for communication, in order to produce synergy through a unique virtual space that helps to develop the types of coordination.
This will allow that particular events can be summoned in their own places and languages.
We will have an Instagram channel in English to empower the new generations.
Materials: We have the brochure in Spanish how to go translating to other languages.
For the impressions we have to contemplate that a new version will be made in May / 2019.
Next virtual meeting to discuss the following types of global coordination
We plan to hold the next world meeting in June.
