We’re winding down our peace project. Hopefully, if you participated, you’ll find your pic in one of our collages.
This day was unanimously voted in by the United Nations back in 2001. In September of 2015, the UN set forth a plan to help further along the idea of a more peaceful society. They adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. It’s called “The 17 Sustainable Development Goals” and they consider these to be the building blocks to achieve peace in our world. They also have created “The Lazy Person’s Guide to Saving the World” which gives simple ideas that you can choose to adopt into your daily life to help make an impact. Check out their website which is listed below.
Again … the questions …..
Who will you make peace with?
What will you do for peace on Peace Day?
How about takin’ it to the streets!!! Organize a walk for peace. Bring together your friends, family and community to unite on Peace Day, 21st September. Want to be anti-social? Take your own personal stroll in support of peace and global unity.
Walk on …. in peace!!!
