“All World for Peace!”

On September 20, 2018, UPF Ukraine held the 5th Junior Ambassadors for Peace Congress “All World for Peace!” dedicated to the International Day of Peace. The event gathered all Peace School participants and partners: pupils and their parents, teachers, educators, representatives of Ukrainian NGO and state institutions. All together about 450 people was in attendance.

We are planning to spread Peace School activities to Zhytomyr and Chernihiv regions. Representatives from these two cities also came to the Congress.

The event was held on the territory of the National Museum of Ukrainian History in the World War II. It is a beautiful place on the hill with a great view of Kyiv city. The weather was sunny and warm.

Before the official part of the Congress children showed two beautiful performances on the square in front of the Museum. First was "Dance of Peace" – simple but beautiful dance with multicolored ribbons and balloons. After that was a heart-touching performance "Angels over Ukraine" directed by well-known Lviv artist Levko Skop. Together with the students-volunteers from Japan and South Korea, children cut out angels from the colored paper, brought them the museum hall and created a special artistic installation. On the boards nearby children and guests wrote their wishes for the Day of Peace.

37 children who actively participated in Peace School during last school year received the Junior Ambassador of Peace Certificate. They read the Promise of the Junior Ambassadors of Peace, promising to continue to spread out the culture of peace in society and the world. Representatives from different countries sent their video-congratulations on the Day of Peace for Ukrainian children. These videos were showed on the Congress.

The Congress concluded with signing the Peace Resolution and ringing in the Bell of Peace. It sounded in the Congress hall as a symbol of peace, friendship and fraternity of all people and nations.
