Celebrate Peace Day 21 September

Each September, Roots & Shoots groups from around the world celebrate Roots & Shoots Peace Day and honour the UN International Day of Peace. Dr. Jane has been a UN Messenger of Peace since 2002 and she inspires us all to live in harmony with nature and each other. Each Roots & Shoots project is a step towards a future in which humans can live in peace in an environmentally sustainable way—a step towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This year’s theme for the UN International Day of Peace is Sustainable Development Goals: Building Blocks for Peace. With this theme in mind, Dr. Jane shared this message.

Celebrate Peace Day with people, animals and the environment through the activities below. Share your photos on the Roots & Shoots Peace Day Facebook Page and using #RootsandShoots #PeaceDay on social media.

Roots&Shoots South Africa will be holding #Peaceday parades and other events. If you would like to join us or would like to organise such an event in your community, please contact us.
