Need some ideas to get you started?
Here are some actions you can take on the Global Peacebuilding Center’s website:

Peace Events of the 20th and 21st Centuries lists some of the more important measures undertaken during the 20th and the first decade of the 21st century in the ongoing worldwide effort to promote peace. After you look at the list, test your knowledge with the accompanying crossword puzzle! Educators: this resource includes tips for using it in the classroom.
