Lisa B. from the CND Peace Education Programme introduces their creative writing competition for schools.
TheInternational Day of Peace is observed every year around the world on 21 September. It is a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, among all nations and people. It calls for a ceasefire in conflict zones and an end to war and violence.
Last year, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, dedicated the day to education for peace. In his speech, Ban Ki-moon said:
“Let us pledge to teach our children the value of tolerance and mutual respect. Let us invest in the schools and teachers that will build a fair and inclusive world that embraces diversity. Let us fight for peace and defend it with all our might.”
You can also inspire your students to take part in the competition by inviting one of our school speakers in to deliver an interactive assembly talk or a classroom workshop – for free!
