School Day of Non-violence and Peace

The “School Day of Non-violence and Peace” is celebrated in Spain on January 30th; the observance is not on the same date all over the world: in the countries following the southern hemisphere's calendars, it is observed on or about March 30.

It was celebrated for the first time in 1964 as a pioneering, non-state, non-governmental, non-official, independent, free and voluntary initiative of non-violent and pacifying education. It advocates a permanent education in and for harmony, tolerance, solidarity, respect for human rights, non-violence and peace.


As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words:  have a look at these images of child soldiers - two words that should never go together- and judge for yourself if they are suitable to illustrate the topic:







As for  the remains of former wars, if we let people use their imagination, they would probably come up with creative ideas: check the use of a canyon as a swing in the following photograph  :


Any other ideas?
