Global Peace Project

Participate In Peace Video

International Day of Peace

International Day of Peace, September 21st, provides a powerful and inspiring opportunity to engage children and youth in diverse activities related to peace, unity and making a positive difference in their world. Meaningful involvement can help set a tone of respect and unity early in the academic year. Do you want to be a part of that?

Peace Project Video

Lisa Parisi organized a project called Global Peace Video. Lisa, an award winning educator in Hyde Park, New York, aims to enable today’s children to make the world a better place in the future. I began participating in 2015 and have LOVED being a part of it. Lisa is now enjoying retirement, and I volunteered to take on the project. Please be patient with me! Classes all over the world participate, and being a part of such a project is so empowering for our children!
