Today, children in some 100 countries are walking out of school to push for global action on climate change. Over the last four months, hundreds of thousands of young people from many countries participated in demonstrations against climate change.
Make art about children leading the way. Or about climate change.

What Does Peace Mean To You?
I’ve posted recently about a new project about which I’m very excited: the Central Virginia Chapter of Writing For Peace, a local outreach of the national organization Writing For Peace.
Our first official chapter project is underway! But we need your help!
Submission Guidelines for Peace Vines
In many conversations about Writing for Peace, we’ve learned that people limit their definition of the word peace to its association with war. The many beautiful and varied ways we can define peace, as individuals or in the many groups, cultures, etc., to which we belong, too often get lost in the shadow of war versus peace. So we want to hear from as many people as possible, discussing what peace means to them personally.
Being curated by Brigid Hokana, Peace Vines will be a Youtube Channel featuring these short videos, with the hope of opening up the discussion of what peace can mean, and why it matters so much to all of us.
If you’re interested in submitting a video for inclusion in Peace Vines, please visit our Current Projects Page for submission details.
We can’t wait to hear from you. Peace.
