The annual Peace Day Challenge is an opportunity to highlight the enduring relevance of the International Day of Peace on September 21 and to inspire actions for peace both big and small. Though September 21st looks different this year, all of us can still do our part to help create a more peaceful world! We invite schools to join the virtual Peace Day Challenge 2020 by sharing students’ actions for peace on social media with the hashtag #PeaceDayChallenge. This year offers a chance to think creatively about what building peace means to you and your students—they could look for opportunities to resolve disagreements, join a virtual volunteer event, or simply make a visual commitment to be a peacebuilder. This short webinar will offer teachers easy ideas for how schools can participate in this year’s virtual Peace Day Challenge 2020. RSVP here to receive the log-in information.
Date: Friday, September 11, 2020, 1:00-1:30 pm ET

Even if you can’t participate in this year’s Peace Day Challenge, we hope you will stay engaged with Public Education at USIP throughout the school year. Our virtual educational programs with USIP experts, student contests, classroom resources, and professional development opportunities provide educators with resources and strategies to bring international issues of conflict and peace and practical peacebuilding skills to American students. We encourage you to sign up for Public Education at USIP’s bimonthly newsletter to learn about opportunities and resources for schools and the broader American public throughout the year. And we are always available to answer questions or offer additional guidance and support – email Megan Chabalowski at firstname.lastname@example.org to connect.
