Share a Peace
Join us and bring flowers to share with the poems. These gifts of peace are a reminder of this important day to think and act on what peace means in our lives and in the world. Give out beautiful and intimate words of peace submitted to the Project to give away in shared international reflection.
Week long activities with themes of peace participation and art start on 17 September 2011 from UNOY (United Network of Young Peacebuilders). Fairtrade roses provided by Global Flower Trading. (Ask for Fairtrade flowers and support economic justice.) Other partners with UNOY besides the VPP are the American Book Center, the Miles Davis festival, The Hague World Forum, and Cafe Quirky. On-line activites include Blogs for Peace: Young people living in (post) conflict societies write about their daily lives and what youth can do to bring positive change. Learn what's going on by individuals working as conflict resolution builders around the world and discover activites on and around Peace Day at Internationaldayofpeace.org.
