Call for applications for the Children’s World Peace Summit is now open!

The call for child representatives for the Children’s World Peace Summit has opened today.
We are looking for “Ideas to make the world peaceful” from teenagers.  

Recently, it is reported that many people have been killed by the invasion of Ukraine, and children are also victims of the invasion.
No matter what kind of environment you were born and raised in, “peace” should never be threatened.

The purpose of this summit is to foster children’s interest in international cooperation and to develop their ability to play an active role in the international community in the future through the experience of learning and thinking about peace proactively with children from many countries.

We hope that this will be an opportunity for children to think not only “not to make war” but also “how we can create peace” and to carry it out.

【Peace Piece Project Initiatives to Achieve World Peace】
There are children in the world who cannot live in “peace” due to the environment in which they were born and raised, social conditions, and various other circumstances.
This project defines world peace as the creation of a planet where children can live in peace, and is raising children who will create peace in order to realize this definition.  
This project has been officially registered as a co-creation challenge in the “TEAM EXPO 2025” program of Expo ‘2025 Osaka-Kansai, and we aim to hold the Children’s World Peace Summit with 100 million children in 100 countries.
