Purpose

Fostering human resources who can play an active role in the international community for the realization of world peace

We, the Peace Piece Project, define world peace as creating an earth where children can live with peace of mind, and we are raising children who create peace to realize it.

 

At the Children’s World Peace Summit, teens representing countries around the world play a leading role.
They interested in world peace, and will gather to exchange views in the International Conference Room of the Members’ Office Building, which is actually used by world leaders.

Children will define peace from their perspective, speech ideas for achieving world peace, and swear their individual action plans. 

In the current state of peace learning, there are opportunities to learn the history of war, but there are few opportunities to learn how to create peace.

We provide an experience of proactively learning and thinking about peace with multinational children of the same generation, during important teenage years of mental and physical development.

 

This will allow children to become interested in international cooperation and acquire the power to play an active role in the international community in the future. This is the purpose of this summit.

We are waiting for applications from many children.

This summit will contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which is an action plan for humans, and the planet to ensure our ongoing prosperity, promoting by the UN.

Theme of the work

“What is peace? Ideas for creating world peace that you think”

What is peace for you?
Please tell us your ideas for making the world peaceful by essay or video.

Even if we say “peace” in one word, its meaning is abstract.
First, think about “what is peace” for you.

 

If you have difficulty thinking about peace, let’s think of someone who you want to make happy.

“What makes the person happy?”
“What is the person in trouble with now?”
There is also a way to think about world peace from the questions above.

 

And what can you do to achieve the world peace you think?

 

such as “Is there anything you can do in committee activities and club activities?”, “Is there anything you can do through your future dreams?”, let’s think about it in connection through your future dreams.
Think with your school teacher and family about what you can do on your own and what you want to do with everyone.

 

Please tell us your ideas for creating world peace with free thinking.

* [Reference material] You can download “Idea Note for Creating Works”.

* Requests to parents and teachers 


We hope that by applying for this summit, children will have the opportunity to learn “how to create peace” rather than learning about the history of “war” and “weapons” in your own country.

 

For example, what has been seen in peace learning so far is the idea of “creating world peace by telling the tragedy of war so as not to repeat such history.”

Of course that is important, but we hope that children will learn one step further.

 

For example, we hope that children will be able to present ideas that they can actively contribute to world peace while being excited as follows.
“I want to create peace by learning the languages and cultures of many countries and making friends with people all over the world so that we can solve problems through discussions without using weapons.”
