“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.
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.
* 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.”
