Last month, Play for Peace celebrated the United Nations World Interfaith Harmony Week, joining a global effort to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence, as well as harmony between all people, regardless of faith. Throughout the week, our clubs had the opportunity to demonstrate and experience the richness of our diversity and show compassion for others.
For the past six years, Play for Peace has integrated interfaith reflection and learning into our peace building work. This year we are joining global efforts, February 1-7, as part of the United Nations World Interfaith Harmony Week.
Just last month, the Play for Peace Global Games took place, offering our clubs a unique way to work together to serve our community and the planet, create peace, and celebrate our year. Here's what happened.
This past April, Play for Peace clubs around the world celebrated Earth Week by taking part in the 2019 Play for Peace Global Games. Working with more than 700 children over the course of the week, our clubs explored what it means to be a leader when you feel connected to the earth.
