2018 Theme and Message: Living Peace
What does Living Peace Mean to You?
This year our theme is co-created with Living Peace International, which was founded in Egypt in 2011, by Carlos Palma. Living Peace International promotes the affirmation of a culture of peace, the only one who can respect and respond to the real and deep questions of each and every one, in the journey towards universal friendship.
The artwork should be drawn and painted to express your life as a person who is Living Peace daily in your life and what Living Peace means to you. Living Peace is a way of life in which we respect and love each other even though we are different. The artwork must include the Universal Message of Peace “May Peace Prevail On Earth”
Questions to inspire youth
What do you do to make the world more peaceful?
When you think of Living Peace, what does it mean to you?
How do you help other people to live in peace?
What does family and friendship mean to you?
When you meet someone who is sad or angry, what do you do to help them?
If young people need help understanding more about the theme, “Living Peace” and what Living Peace represents, we invite the adult community members to visit Living Peace International and learn about this very important global project. Adults are asked to explain in ways the young person will understand.
