Peace Day 2020 – we can still celebrate!

This September 21st, we might not be able to gather together to fly our giant doves but we can certainly celebrate Peace day, and indeed, make it a special day!

This year is more important than ever to unite (even from afar), and the theme couldn’t be more fitting – ‘Shaping Peace Together

Here at Roots & Shoots we would like to encourage you to take part. Here are a few ideas to get you started;

• Sing the Peace Day Song

• Share ideas – what is Peace? What can we do together to have a more peaceful World?

• Make a Giant Peace Dove (get the whole family involved and fly it in your garden) and Small Peace Day Doves

• Write a pledge on your dove – what can you do to bring Peace and harmony to your local environment, and/or the world stage?And of course, share your pledges and photos with us! We will create a gallery and inspire even more people! E-mail Jasmina Georgovska at
