On the occasion of UNESCO's 50th Anniversary, seven Sub-Regional Children's Culture of Peace Festivals were held around the world enabling pupils and teachers taking part in the UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet) to speak out in favour of peace and tolerance.

More than five hundred children and teachers participated in the Festivals hosted by Cook Islands, Costa Rica, Greece, Grenade, Jordan, Thailand and Zimbabwe.

This eight-minute video presents some of the special moments and highlights of the various Festivals revealing the children's concern, excitement, motivation and commitment in favour of peace.
