Dear Roots & Shoots members,

“One day, there will be so many people marching with Giant Peace Dove Puppets that you’ll be able to see a ring of white, circling the Earth, from outer space via satellite.” – Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE

Roots & Shoots Day of Peace is coming up in just four weeks. It is a great opportunity to engage your group, classroom, or family in a project promoting peace. Following Dr. Jane’s leadership as a United Nations Messenger of Peace, members and friends of Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots have celebrated this special day since 2004.

Each year Roots & Shoots groups across the globe build and fly Giant Peace Dove Puppets to celebrate peace. Through flying their Giant Peace Dove Puppets, and planning projects that promote peace, our groups demonstrate their commitment to creating a better world for all people, animals and the environment.

Day of Peace can also be celebrated by simply completing a project that makes a difference in your area. Many Roots & Shoots groups have planted flowers or trees on the Day of Peace in order to learn more about plants whilst enhancing their environment.  Visit our world map of past Day of Peace projects or our Project Database to gather ideas for your project.

However you decide to celebrate this amazing day, please let us know your plans by simply posting your activity on

Roots & Shoots Day of Peace 2011 is sure to be monumental as it is the 30th anniversary of the first U.N. resolution for Day of Peace as well as Roots & Shoots’ 20th Anniversary.  Because this year is so special, it is our goal to encircle the world in Peace Doves. Start planning your Day of Peace activities today!
