Global Messengers of Peace is an initiative to serve our local communities and other communities around the world by using UN Sustainable Development Goals as building blocks of peace. Goals are embedded into courses as part of Global Learning and Engagement initiatives. Project also use current Scouting Messengers of Peace projects to related them to the Goals and share them as best practices in other countries.
Scouts, as local Messengers of Peace, also learn from other projects. Scouts in one location could collaborate with other projects by sending donations, books, or providing resources. Scouts can replicate successful projects and share their own projects using social media.
We will use our social media resources fb.com/scoutingadventures (English), fb.com/NoticiasScouts (Spanish), our video channels, and Scouting blogs (Scouting Adventures). We will also combine information with our university partners Global Learning News and fb.com/globallearnnews.
Events and initial resources include:
International Peace Day Labyrinth (Sep 21, 2016 at Florida College of Jacksonville)
Hiroshima: 70 Years Later: Origamis for Peace
TEDxFSCJ Salon about Youth, Leadership, Technology, and Peace.
We ALL are “#GlobalMessengersOfPeace
Global Messengers of Peace. We ALL are Messengers of Peace. The Dalai Lama said today “On this International Day of Peace, we must remember that peace cannot come from prayer alone. It requires action”.
#PeaceDayChallenge. We say that we should Think Globally, Act Locally and Globally. As Global Messengers of Peace, we should work in our local communities and share what others are doing in their own communities. As Global Scouts we ALL should be involved as #MessengersOfPeace and share our service to other groups, students, and communities. We are expanding our #ScoutingAdventures to our students in college and universities. At the same time, we are sharing what other groups are doing to work for #GlobalPeace. We ALL are #GlobalMessengersOfPeace.
During the 23rd World Scout Jamboree 2015 in Japan, close to 34,000 scouts from around 150 countries attended the Hiroshima Peace Program organized by the Scouts of Hiroshima. We visited the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and Park and participated in several activities including reading messages of survivors and making origami cranes for peace.
After our return from Japan we are preparing several presentations for students and our community about “Japan 70 years later”. They include Hiroshima 70 years later, origami cranes for peace, the World Scout Jamboree experience, and Nuclear energy and safety in Japan.
The emphasis of all presentations are about the importance about being Messengers of Peace and our service to others to pursue peace, freedom, friendship and happiness in our planet.
