How to teach Peace Day In an unsettled world, the UN International Day of Peace on 21 September is an opportunity to reflect on peace and reconciliationboth globally and in our personal lives at school and home. It is also a day of practical action, to make acts of peace and observe a day of worldwide ceasefire and non-violence. We have some powerful resources on the Guardian Teacher Network to use on Peace Day and beyond. Peace One Day (POD), founded by filmmaker Jeremy Gilley, has some stirring and engaging resources. Amnesty International has produced resources on child soldiers aimed at 11- to 14-year-olds, which focus on the story of Ishmael Beah, who became a child soldier in Sierra Leone when he was just 13. The People's History Museum has produced a citizenship lesson on campaigning for a cause, focusing on the birth of the British Peace Committee and of course making use of fascinating original sources. And we have a set of assemblies by Christian Aid.
