youth peace week toolkit
Each year, the Peace Foundation provides a new theme for Youth Peace Week that is timely and relevant to the students participating both in New Zealand and around the world.
As part of Youth Peace Week, The Peace Foundation provides a toolkit with information about the chosen topic and full of activity ideas for any school or organisation that would like to get involved
A digital copy of the toolkit is made available well in advance before Youth Peace Week so that schools and organisations have time to prepare the activities.

When and Where
AUGUST – A month for ACTION towards a more peaceful world
Youth Peace Week happens in August each year and coincides with Hiroshima Day on 6 August and Nagasaki Day on 9 August to educate people of the consequences of nuclear war and to campaign for a world free of nuclear weapons.
Connect with your community
We encourage schools and organisations to hold peace activities within their respective communities during the week. The toolkit provides helpful ideas and tips for this.
