Part of what Peace Day Philly has posted:

A key ingredient in building culture of peace is education. The young of today deserve a radically different education – one that does not glorify war but educates for peace, non-violence and international cooperation. - Ambassador A. K. Chowdhury, Former UN Under-Secretary-General & High Representative and former head of UNICEF



Peace Day provides a powerful and inspiring opportunity to engage children and youth in diverse activities related to envisioning peace, developing global awareness, and making a positive difference in their world.
