Embark on a transformative journey towards peace with us! At the heart of our mission is the commitment to nurturing understanding and cooperation among children and youth of all ages. The International Children’s Peace Assembly stands as a vibrant platform, fostering enduring friendships and cultivating a sense of global unity.

Our pursuit of peace involves the active exchange of knowledge, removing ignorance, and promoting diversity. Through engaging activities, children collaboratively develop new skills, broaden their life experiences, and discover the joy of working together. In this dynamic initiative, children are invited to share their visions for the future, proposing solutions that resonate with their dreams of how the world should be.

This unique process culminates in the selection of outstanding speeches, with the chosen children invited to share their powerful messages at the local Parliament. The transcript of these speeches becomes an integral part of a report, forwarded to esteemed organizations like the United Nations, contributing to a collective effort to shape a brighter and more harmonious future. Join us on this exciting journey of fostering peace, unity, and empowering the voices of our future leaders!
