UN Peace Day 21 September

Monday 19th June, 2017

Thursday 21 September is 2017 UN Peace Day. The theme is 'Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All'. Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a culture of peace. We are encouraging all schools in the UK to do something special on Peace Day. And ex-Head Teacher Sue Webb has gifted her Peace Assembly to the world to use on that day! Please see our Publications and Resources page. Thanks Sue!

Please contribute your ideas to Peacemakers future

Tuesday 7th March, 2017

Peacemakers is a charity working with schools on issues around social and emotional learning, peace and conflict. We are undergoing a strategic review. This means we are thinking creatively about 'what next' for the charity from 2018. We would really like to hear from people in schools - whether you have heard of Peacemakers or not. We are really keen to hear from as many people - in as many roles - as possible. The survey takes about 10 minutes. Your input is really important to us. So please, do our survey! And if you can pass it on to others working in schools, even better! Thanks, The Peacemakers team. Link to survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/XVBQTQP
