Information for schools
The Rotary Peace Bell aims to introduce and reinforce the concept of Peace in the lives of our young people.
The requirement for all of us to exist in a peaceful environment is essential if we want to create an all inclusive and compassionate society.
Peace Education is the key to achieve this.
Not just Peace in the world but also around issues as domestic violence, bullying and anger management, just to mention a few.
Peace Education is not only about the future requirement but can incorporate historical events that have created Peace in the world.
This project will provide focus and symbolizes the drive to the ultimate achievement of lasting Global Peace.
The Rotary Peace Bell is to be rung on moments of reflection by schools, community or individuals.
As an example:
To celebrate acceptance and diversity
• Harmony Day 21 March
• National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence March
• National “Sorry Day” 26 may
• Celebrating International Day of Peace (UN) 21 Sept
• White Ribbon Day (to end violence against woman and girls) Nov
