Peace Tree Day Introduction

Peace Tree Day is an annual festival for children and families of every culture and faith to celebrate peace, diversity and fusion through the arts!

Children around the world are creating Peace Trees that highlight symbols from all our cultures and faiths on one tree to reflect the beauty of 'diversity in unity'.

Peace Tree Day, which takes place on June 1st every year, is celebrated in cities, organizations, classrooms, homes and through school boards. The festival inspires children to take pride in their heritage and to share it with others, while also discovering the vibrant cultures, traditions and festivals arounds the world. It is also a time to encourage young people to share their talents and develop compassion for others. Students from diverse backgrounds will work together by combining elements from different cultures, to create new forms of art, which will help raise funds to assist underprivileged children around the globe. Peace Tree Day will inspire young people to contribute to society while they explore and celebrate the beauty of every culture and faith to create peace in our world.

A Peace Tree for your Organization, Business or Hospital

Many organizations, business and hospitals are becoming aware of The Peace Tree Spirit and would like to have a Peace Tree created for their institution. Students in schools are becoming more and more aware of the challenges faced by many children around the world and realize the need to assist those who are underprivileged.

By researching and creating a set of Peace Tree symbols (made from paper mache, Fimo, wooden cutout pieces), children can present the symbols to an organization, business or hospital that is interested in creating their own Peace Tree. After researching a charity of their choice, the students can donate the symbols to the institution and the institution in turn will donate $200 to $500 (depending on the size of the organization), to the charity of the students’ choice. Up to fifty dollars will go towards the school to cover the cost of supplies and the remainder to the charity. The institution will purchase the tree that will be turned into a Peace Tree.

Once the symbols are complete, students can visit the institution, do a presentation about the importance of the Peace Tree and decorate the symbols on the institutions tree. To inaugurate the Peace Tree students can sing the Peace Tree song and share and celebrate the Peace Tree Spirit with all the employees!
