In her opening remarks, the chair of UPF-Seychelles, Mrs. Elizabeth, said "Why did we choose to look for other partners to join us? The answer is simple: we have to work together for peace to reign."

After the song "Let There Be Love" sung by school children, a poem was recited, and a local musical group sang. Everything was about promoting peace.

This was followed by a speech by the vice chair of LUNGOS (a national platform for civil society), a reflection and prayer by the bishop, and a speech by the founding president of Seychelles, Sir James Mancham.

Closing remarks were given by the Secretary General of UPF-Seychelles, Mr. Louis Betioux, and the program ended with the song, "Give Peace a Chance."
