The Peace Day Challenge exists to raise the profile of the International Day of Peace and to affirm peace as a real alternative to the violence we see every day in the news. This will mark the 5th year of this signature USIP campaign, which has achieved huge reach and energy—from the engagement of schools and organizations across the U.S., to collaborations with partners in conflict zones, to the involvement of tens of millions of people via social media. Discover how you, your school, or your organization can join us in action this year and be part of our special Peace Day Challenge mosaic! Information:
USIP’s Public Education team has launched a pilot partnership with Inspired Classroom to engage students in grades 6-12 across the U.S.—creating projects that elevate peacebuilding stories from around the world to contrast with the stories of violent conflict and extremism that tend to dominate the news cycle. Information:
USIP’s Peace Teachers Program is a year-long professional development opportunity for middle and high school educators in the United States. Launched in 2015, it offers a select group of educators the opportunity to work closely with USIP and with each other over the course of a school year as they incorporate global peacebuilding themes and skills into their classrooms.
