Peace Poem

To celebrate the International Day of Peace, the UN CyberSchoolBus organized the Peace Poem project. Two lines of poetry about Peace were solicited by email from schools across the globe. Submissions were accepted in English, French, and Spanish. We ended up with over 500 poems from 38 countries (depending on how you count Macau.)


After putting all of the submissions together, we emailed back the completed poem, posted it on the Web, and then turned out a handsomely designed oversized print version of the poem complete with artwork from the International Paint Pals, a preface from Secretary-General Kofi Annan, and an original watercolor by his wife Nane. The printed book was sent free of charge to all of the contributing classes, as well as offered for sale by UN Publications.
