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

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

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

This summit is an opportunity for children to learn and think about peace independently with children from many different countries. The purpose of this program is to develop children’s interest in international cooperation and to nurture their ability to play an active role in the international community in the future.

We hope that this will be an opportunity not only to say “no war” but also to think about how we can create peace.

【Peace Piece Project Initiatives to Achieve World Peace】

There are children around the world who are unable to 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.  
This project has been officially registered as a co-creation challenge for 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 from 100 countries.
