On Thursday we celebrated the 3-month countdown to Peace Day 21 September 2012.
As you may already be aware, Peace One Day’s Global Truce 2012 campaign is calling for and working towards a day of ceasefire and non-violence, observed by all sectors of society, on Peace Day 2012. We hope this will be the largest reduction of violence ever recorded globally on one day – a world record – and the largest ever gathering of individuals in the name of peace.
I am delighted to announce that Peace One Day Education is joining the campaign with the launch of the Global Truce 2012 Schools’ Network. Peace One Day recognises the crucial role education plays in the long term success of Peace Day and is inviting all schools/youth groups/educational bodies to join this network and make their commitment to mark Peace Day 2012. The Schools’ Network will provide a platform for teachers and schools to be a part of this groundbreaking initiative. In turn, this will enable Peace One Day to measure the impact of schools and young people on Peace Day 21 September 2012.
There are currently 60 schools/youth groups/educational bodies in the Schools’ Network, active in 43 different countries around the world. As an already established Peace One Day Education supporter, we encourage you to join as well and help mobilise a generation of young people in support of Peace Day. You can join here: http://peaceoneday.org/?p=3510
We will continue to grow this network in the next 3 months and ensure every country in the world is represented. Keep checking the Peace One Day Education page on the website to stay up to date on all the campaign’s developments: http://peaceoneday.org/teachers/
Once you are member of the Schools’ Network you will receive updates on the campaign’s progress, exclusive content and more.
Thank you again for all of your support, and I look forward to being in touch soon.
