Join us to celebrate Peace Day

Every year on the 21st September, Roots & Shoots groups from around the world gather together to celebrate Peace Day and honour the UN International Day of Peace.

Dr. Jane has been a UN Messenger of Peace since 2002 and she inspires us all to live in harmony with nature and each other. Each Roots & Shoots project is a step towards a future in which humans can live in peace in an environmentally sustainable way – a step towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

2023 Theme Actions for Peace: Our ambition for the #GlobalGoals

There is so much we can do to foster peace, and we would like to encourage you to join us. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Sing the Peace Day Song
  • Share ideas – what is Peace? How can you contribute to a World of compassion and empathy? Create a poster, talk to each other/ to others – what does peace mean to you and what you can do to inspire and foster peace around you
  • Host a Peace Day Parade. Make a Giant Peace Dove (get the whole class/ school involved) and Small Peace Day Doves (colour each dove in a different skin colour and fly them together)
  • Write a pledge on your dove – what can you do to bring Peace and harmony? And of course, share your pledges and photos with us! We will create a gallery to inspire even more people! E-mail Jasmina Georgovska at
