Peace One Day (POD) is an organization that celebrates an international ceasefire on the International Day of Peace, September 21. They have developed a Global Education Resource Pack that is now available in the six official languages of the United Nations. It’s free, online (and downloadable) and includes Peace One Day short films and interviews and exercise handouts. Thirteen lessons are included in the Global Pack helping young people to explore issues of peace, non-violence, conflict resolution and intercultural cooperation, using Peace Day as a focus. POD Education materials are now reportedly being used by over 6,000 educators in over 140 countries.
Resource packs specialized to match United States and U.K. educational standards are also available, so be sure to pick the collection most relevant to your location. The U.S. and U.K packs have 21 activities included, more than the more generic Global pack that has been translated into more languages.
