#DareToCare – dare to care
We promote active citizenship
Educating for peace also means promoting concrete actions to transform a globalized society from below, where the lack of rights and the striking inequalities often make the mere pronouncement of the word “peace” meaningless. We therefore emphasize the aspect of care intended as taking charge, taking care of others, the planet, society, institutions from a young age. Living Peace thus invites you to embark on a path of active citizenship with the classes or groups, enriching the educational / training path and enhancing the 6x1 method - six steps for one goal.
International Day of Peace
International Peace Day is celebrated on 21 September. This date was decided in 2001 with Resolution 55/282: for the occasion the United Nations invited all countries to cease hostilities and to promote educational actions that raise awareness and promote peace.
School Day of Peace and Non-violence
A day recognized by UNESCO in 1993. The anniversary is January 30th and wishes to draw the attention of politicians, parents and educators to the need for continuous training in non-violence and peace; it is necessary to educate to solidarity and respect for others “since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defenses of peace must be built” (UNESCO Constitution, 1945). It can be an opportunity to publicly demonstrate one’s path / commitment undertaken for Peace.
In Time for Peace
«To prevent war from being the law between people and peoples, let’s be peacemakers from now on.» Certificate of Commitment
Living Peace invites you to take a challenge:
1. Peace starts with me
2. Peace and the others
3. Peace and the local community/the world
A little, tiny rule would be enough to change the world: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you and don't do unto others what you don't want done unto you!” It’s so important and valuable that it has been named the Golden Rule.
What about living it at school or in our youth groups?
Teddy Bear Hugs
This activity, proposed together with the Children of the Earth association, allows children to donate their own teddy bear and a message of peace to a refugee child, an orphan, or a kid who is going through a difficult moment.
Peace Crane Project
Kids between 6 and 14 are invited to create “origami peace cranes” with kids from other schools or groups, and exchange their creations with each other.
This simple sign will help us to open our hearts and feel unity.
The Tree of Peace
In collaboration with Mil Milenios de Paz, we offer an activity based on the tree of life, helping to think about the deep meaning of peace and its values.
Peace Flags Exchange
This activity is based on designing “flags of peace” in small groups. Each group can choose a Country where a Living Peace school or association is based and then send them the flag they had created.
Elephants for Peace
Elephants symbolise a sign of peace that combines strength and peace.
With this activity, in collaboration with Elephants for Peace, we encourage everybody to be creative and design an elephant representing peace.
Mandalas of Peace
Drawing mandalas encourages creative thinking and conflict resolution strategies.
Together with Mimos para tus Ojos we offer an opportunity to design mandalas, working in groups or individually: the underlying idea is to Create for Others.
Certificate of Commitment
The Certificate of Commitment is both a document and an instrument we can all use to offer our personal contribution to achieving goal number two (Zero Hunger) of the17 Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the UN General Assembly. The goals are to be achieved within 2030.
Sportmeet promotes this peace education activity in collaboration with Living Peace International.
The project is grounded on an attitude of fair play, communication and interaction: mutual respect, care for others, honesty in abiding by the rules of play, the ability to listen, apologize for faults, etc. This lifestyle in play and sport should be an impulse for an identical commitment in everyday life: to work for a peaceful co-operative society.
