Individuals can achieve so much, by acting as a role model and an inspiration to others, we believe everyone has the ability to be change agents; it’s not just the great and few among us but every individual every day that makes the big difference.
How can you make a difference? The INSPIRE Peace Charter underpins all that we are seeking to achieve. By signing the Charter, as a school, youth group or an individual, you are taking a vital first step to building peace.
We want you to use the values in the INSPIRE peace charter to create your own shared pledges for action by encouraging young people to work collaboratively to discuss and debate peacebuilding. This gives an opportunity for young people to discuss issues in a considered way, showing respect for others’ ideas and points of view.
Shared pledges could be created as a Student Council, youth or community group or as a whole school. A tool to help you do that can be found here and a useful ‘How do I get involved’ diagram can be downloaded here.
Once you have created your shared pledges you can look on the resource page for ideas on projects that will help you turn your pledges into actions. You can also read stories from other young people and schools about what they have done and the impact they have had.
