Hold a peace summit at your school

 

 

In the days after the Boston Marathon bombing a photo of Martin Richards circulated the Internet and was shared by media outlets worldwide. Martin had died from injuries sustained in the explosion.  In the photo Martin can be seen holding a handmade poster that read,"No more hurting people - Peace." Martin's view of peace went well beyond simply wanting to prevent violence. To him, peace meant things like togetherness, compassion, teamwork, fairness, sportsmanship, inclusion, and being kind.

No Bully partnered with GenerationOn to create all the project materials that you need to engage your students in a classroom peace summit. The summit is designed to open students eyes to the many ways that they hurt each other, including bullying, and to activate them as changemakers in creating solutions.  

Often school leaders invite the classroom peace ambassadors to a schoolwide assembly at which they share their recommendations for building a non-violent culture on campus with their fellow students and teachers and staff.
