Give your students a chance to be a part of history through a fun and simple activity!

Peace Day Google Doodle

This year we are coordinating a global activity among schools - sure to set students’ imagination alight - that will contribute to a landmark achievement in the journey of Peace Day.

The mission is to see a Peace Day Google Doodle* on Google’s homepage on 21 September, and we are encouraging young people to be the voice of this call, through their own creative #PeaceDayGoogleDoodle designs!

Testimonials

"Active Citizenship is a key theme of the citizenship curriculum. Peace One Day as an organisation, the UN resolution, the resource pack and Peace Day itself are all the result of one person's idea and determination to see it become a reality. The Peace One Day Resource Pack capitalises on this and uses this, and other examples, to allow pupils to discover the opportunities for individuals and bring about social change. This concept fits in directly with the participation and responsible action section of the citizenship curriculum and could also be used to emphasise the importance of voting and participation in the democratic process. There are many lesson plans which link with other areas of the Citizenship Programmes of Study for Key Stages 3 and 4 including teaching pupils to think about topical political, spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues, problems and events. Pupils are also encouraged to contribute to group and exploratory class discussions, and take part in debates. Several of the lesson plans look at the workings of the United Nations, which could be used as a starting point to explore other democratic institutions. There is also a wealth of information and ideas to deal with the issues of bullying, learning to resolve conflict fairly, human rights and criminal justice."

Elaine Sweeney, UK Government, Department for Education & Skills, PSHE & Citizenship Team, UK

"CISV International is a global Peace Education organisation, working in over 60 countries worldwide. We have been so impressed with the Peace One Day Global Resource that we will be using the lesson plans and other resources on Conflict and Resolution in all of our Peace Education programmes next year. Our volunteers around the world are extremely excited about using the Global Resource, as it is of a high quality and can be readily adapted for use in an informal, non-classroom situation for children and young people from a diversity of national and cultural backgrounds. That the Global Resource is available in different languages helps ensure that it is truly accessible."

Kiran Hingorani, Education Officer, CISV International

"The education resource was extremely helpful and thought-provoking and we used it as the basis of two days of solid seminar work with our secondary students, as well as inspiration for activities our primary students were involved. It proved to be the ideal catalyst for raising awareness."

"In Port Glasgow High School we observed the UN International Day of Peace on 21 September. One of the most dramatic outcomes of the day was the massive drop in behaviour referrals that day, to just one referral, as a result of staff and pupils ‘being nice to one another."

Lorna Anderson, Teacher, Port Glasgow High School, Scotland, UK
