International Day of Peace – 21 September
This year WAGGGS is teaming up with Peace One Day to mark the International Day of Peace on 21 September. As part of Peace One Day’s Global Truce 2012, WAGGGS wants Girl Guides and Girl Scouts to take action to create a world of peace. A world without violence.
We hope that this year’s Peace Day will see the largest global reduction of violence ever recorded on one day. The Global Truce 2012 hopes to make a world record for the largest ever gathering of individuals in the name of peace. And we want Girl Guides and Girl Scouts to be a part of this record attempt.
As members we want you to help support this world record attempt. To do so, you need to take two easy actions:
- Plan and stage an event for Peace Day. The WAGGGS’ Peace Day activity sheet has lots of activities that you can do to take action.
- Tell WAGGGS about your event by filling in this simple form so your action can be counted.
One day without violence is the stepping stone to a future without violence.
Peace Day – Film
Do you want to appear in a film that will broadcasted to thousands at a special Peace Day concert featuring Elton John? If so, grab a camera and film you and your friends talking about violence against girls and the role girls and young women can play in ending it.
WAGGGS is creating a special film for the day and we want to feature you in the film. Send your film submission to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 17 September 2012.
