"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" - Nelson Mandela

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE SEPTEMBER 21

It was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 and the International Day of Peace was first celebrated in September 1982. This day gives us the chance to help students look at their own role in world peace. It's a day worth remembering all year long. The International Day of Peace has a special significance in 2008 as it marks both the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the 60th anniversary of UN peacekeeping. This year's Peace Day is themed Human Rights and Peacekeeping. Celebrate the United Nations' International Day of Peace on September 21st by joining the worldwide movement to create a global ceasefire and day of peace and nonviolence. This is a time to help students develop respect for diverse cultures. In a message commemorating the Day in 1995, Secretary-General Boutros-Ghali stated that “the world, once more, cries out for peace. And for the economic and social development that peace alone can assure... Let us keep our goal clear and simple... Let us work for peace.”

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" - Nelson Mandela

You can find lesson plans, printables, references, and activities on a variety of peace-related resources, like Middle-Eastern conflict, dealing with war, classroom conflict, September 11, tolerance, discrimination, and more to educate your students.

May Peace Prevail On Earth!
