Exhibitions of Youth Messages for Peace: “How Can We Create Peace Together?”

An Exhibitions of Youth Messages for Peace will be held in Korea in September 2014. It is being organized by the Global Campaign for Peace Education, Japan, and supported by the New English Teachers’ Association and the Japan Education and Resource Network.

“Our words can change the whole world.”

Expressing your ideas to create peace will help you take action for peace and inspire others to cooperate. This is not a contest. It is an exhibition of ideas.

3. Suggesting to peace museums around the world that they hold more exhibitions or contests of student peace work
4. Publicizing current international exhibitions or contests of student peace work
5. Promoting international communication among students who join this event
