Honor and support world peace

Each year, in support of the United Nations International Day of Peace, Roots & Shoots members and friends come together to promote peace. All over the world, young people craft Giant Peace Dove Puppets from reused materials and fly the Doves in their communities. From the top of Mount Kilimanjaro to the low plains of Kansas, Peace Doves fly, held high by hopeful hands.

Together, young people are making peace possible. Join them.
