Helloooo, and welcome back! The 2016 Peace Day festivities are underway, and we hope that you enjoying this project as much as we enjoyed creating it.
This project is about making a little change in the world and asking you all reading this to make a little change, as well. Peace is all about individual action so take some time and think about what your contribution can be. And, yes we have ideas for you in each post leading up to Peace Day.
2014 showed some impressive statistics with the Peace One Day Report which recorded over 1 billion people exposed to Peace Day messages and 10 million people behaving more peacefully on the day as a result of the movement.
Our throwback collage from 2014 was about how peace comes in all languages. It is with sincere appreciation to all the villagers that took the time to help us with expressing peace in their native tongue.
Now onto the questions …
Who will you make peace with?
What will you do for peace on Peace Day?
Here’s an idea for you!!! One Day One Goal uses the power of sport in observation of Peace Day, 21st September. Organize a soccer match or even a tournament dedicated to peace.
Not a soccer player??? Pick whatever sport you like.
Not the sporty type???
It’s okay, we have more ideas coming your way.,
Peace out, ya’ll!
Peace One Day
