Solemn closing ceremony on the 9th of October


Special guests of the closing ceremony at the University of Iceland were 50 young people from around the world who are presently in Iceland for the 100 years anniversary of the Icelandic Scout Association, but the centennial year is dedicated to peace. About 40 students of Political Science and Japanese greeted them, along with the partners supporting the exhibition and Japanese people residing in Iceland. On the upper level of Háskólatorg a greeting from the Director of The Nagasaki National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb, Mr. Masanobu Chita was read and the foreign scouts performed a short act which they named “The Value of Life.” Following that, guests visited the exhibition, where they took part in an one-minute silence of remembrance for the victims of the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Then, John Lennon’s song, “Imagine,” was played followed by guests viewing the exhibition during this final day of the exhibition in Reykjavik.
