World Peace Through Global Campaigns

Who will you make peace with?

In August we received the following message:

Dear Ann, You recently showed interest in Peace One Day’s Skype in the Classroom project. This is an opportunity for groups of students to Skype with Nic Frances Gilley, our education ambassador, to learn about Jeremy’s journey to establish an annual day of ceasefire and non-violence with a fixed calendar date.

This week our class will be Skyping with Peace One Day and we are looking forward to it. To prepare for the Skype conversation will will be looking into the material provided on their webpage and prepare questions for the interview. After the Skype talk we will be posting the result on our blogs!

Lesson plan
