Each year, in support of United Nations International Day of Peace, Roots & Shoots members and friends come together to promote peace. All over the world, young people craft Giant Peace Dove Puppets from reused materials and fly the Doves in parades in their local communities. From the Pier in Santa Monica, to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, to the low plains of Kansas, Peace Doves fly, held high by hopeful hands.
Our annual Peace Dove Parade will begin at the top of the Santa Monica Pier at 2:00 pm. Roots & Shoots members and festival-goers will join together to fly a collection of one hundred hand-made giant doves in a breathtaking display of performance art along the Santa Monica Pier parade route and on the beach to the waters edge below the South side of the Pier.
Simultaneously, Peace Doves will be flying in cities all across the United States and in close to 100 countries worldwide as Roots & Shoots groups all across the globe fly Giant Doves in their own local communities. Learn how to create your own Giant Peace Dove to fly in the Day of Peace Parade.
Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots & Shoots youth program is dedicated to encouraging young people and adults all across the globe to identify concerns in their communities and take action to create a better world. Roots & Shoots members develop and participate in campaigns promoting a more balanced co-existence among people, animals and the environment. For more information check out www.RootsAndShoots.org
