The resource includes 19 student-centred lesson plans as well as Peace Day Projects, Cross-curricular Links and video footage from The Day After Peace.

The Day After Peace School Edition DVD contains two classroom-ready versions of the film (32-minutes and 58-minutes) as well as the original feature-length version (with subtitles in the six official languages of the United Nations – Arabic, Chinese [Mandarin], English, French, Russian and Spanish).
ABOUT PEACE ONE DAY
In 1999, film maker Jeremy Gilley embarked upon a mission that, 10 years later, would involve over 100 million people worldwide: PEACE DAY.
Gilley’s initial mission to try and establish the first ever Day of Peace with a fixed calendar date was achieved in 2001 when member states of the UN unanimously adopted Peace Day as 21 September annually.
Since then, Peace One Day has continued to work with global organisations, including UNICEF & the World Health Organisation, to help secure the conditions in which life saving initiatives can take place on Peace Day.
