Welcome to the World Peace Flame
Every day, people from all over the world and all walks of life are lighting World Peace Flame candles as a symbol of universal peace and as a reminder that peace is the change that you and I can make here and now by the way we think, speak, feel and act to create harmony in our daily life and relationships.
'Peace in your hands’ is a project for children aged 8 to 12 which can be incorporated into various school subjects. It has been developed by the World Peace Flame Foundation and consists of a teacher’s manual and a children’s workbook. Many schools in the UK, Australia and The Netherlands have enjoyed working with the World Peace Flame and incorporating peace projects into their educational programmes. In the course of doing these peace projects, children have written many essays and poems. The writings illustrate the children’s ideas on peace—for the present and for future generations.
Brief history of the World Peace Flame
Seven flames, lit on five continents, were flown by military and commercial aircraft to the United Kingdom. On 31st July 1999 they were united in Bangor, North Wales to create the World Peace Flame. Since then, the Flame has been presented to world leaders and featured prominently in many major world events. The World Peace Flame has been taken to every country in the world and is being lit daily by millions of people as a dedication to peace. We aim to inspire people everywhere that the individual plays a crucial role in creating peace at every level.
