Children’s Peace Summit 2017

We held a Children’s Peace Summit on 21st September 2017 to mark the 30th anniversary of Peacemakers and International Peace Day. Children from 8 primary schools in the West Midlands came together to explore Inner Peace, Peace on the Streets, Peace at School and Peace in the World. Scroll to the bottom of this page to see who was involved. 

Here we share some of the Pledges they made, their Messages to decision-makers and lots of photographs and video footage from the day.  Enjoy!

The Pledge Tree consists of promises made by children during the workshops. As part of the day children hung their pledges onto a peace tree. The tree can be seen at the Peace Hub , 41 Bull Street, Birmingham.
