United Nations Day of Peace

“On September 21st of every year, the United Nations Day of Peace, people around the globe express their desire for a world where war and violence are things of the past. The Giant Peace Dove puppets — flown by young people and the young-at-heart in cities, towns, and villages near and far — are a symbol and celebration of this yearning for peace. I hope you will join us on Peace Day to ‘fly’ a dove and make the very globe a canvas for peace. Let us give flight to our dreams for a better world.” —Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE Founder, Jane Goodall Institute, UN Messenger of Peace

“When I heard Dr. Jane Goodall describe her vision that one day there will be so many people carrying giant peace doves that one will be able to see them from space via satellite, I thought, that’s the wildest thing I’ve ever heard! I love it! We have to do it!

We will achieve peace some day. Our survival depends on it. It may take ten years, or 30 years or 341 years, but one day the global community will evolve into a sustainable culture that lives in peace, that respects all the world’s peoples and creatures. Holding a giant worldwide peace dove parade and celebration once a year will help remind us of our quest.” –Dana Lyons
