Peace One Day Educational Resources Pack

Peace One Day is a global effort to support an annual day of peace and cessation of violence worldwide. The non-profit project was launched in 1999 by British filmmaker Jeremy Gilley who developed a film documenting his efforts to establish the first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence with a fixed calendar date.  The day was unanimously adopted by UN member states in 2001 as 21st September annually.

The effort to promote the September 21 2009 celebration includes an extensive educational resources pack, the 3rd edition, that includes 19 student-centered lesson plans aimed at Grades 6-12.  The kit includes accompanying multimedia and cross-curricular links and information on educational standards met by the activities. Registration is required, but the resource is free.
