Embark on a green adventure with us as we delve into the heart of environmental stewardship. Our mission extends beyond just creating a Peace Park; we’re cultivating a green haven, the Rotary International Children’s Peace Park, interwoven with the melody of the Peace Bells.

Partnering with schools and educational establishments, we’re sowing the seeds of eco-awareness, educating young minds about the significance of saving our planet. Join us in a journey to combat climate change, encourage tree planting, and weave a tapestry of nature that not only enhances well-being but also safeguards our precious resources. Let’s create a legacy where sustainability meets friendship and every tree planted is a promise for a greener, healthier future.

Our Project

Let's Save Our Planet Education Program

Environmental Literacy for the Youth

Project Overview

Welcome to the “Let’s Save Our Planet” Initiative – A global movement spearheaded by Dr Honey Kalaria, co-founder of The International Children’s Peace Network (ICPN). “Our mission is to gift each school library or school a copy of the captivating graphic novel written by Julie Wornan, providing children and teens with a fact-based understanding of the changing world due to various environment related topics”.

What will children learn

Each child will embark on an enlightening journey with ‘Let’s Save Our Planet,’ a captivating graphic novel that masterfully blends fun and seriousness to provide children and teens with a fact-based understanding of our ever-changing world. Join Hugo and Elodie as they encounter Maddy, the spirit of an extinct butterfly, symbolizing the devastating impact of human actions on nature. Riding on Maddy’s magical wings, the children witness storms, floods, heat waves, and melting glaciers, gaining insights into greenhouse gases, fossil fuels, carbon-neutral energy, and eco-friendly practices. This vividly illustrated edition offers a delightful feast for the eyes while imparting essential knowledge about environmental conservation and inspiring positive change.”
