World Peace Flag Ceremony with the Children-Novosibirsk, Siberia-RUSSIA

Monday, November 21st, 2011

August 1st, 2011

Members of URI CC “Euro-Asia” were invited to the Center of Day Social Services in Novosibirsk, Siberia.

The Children’s Program is to prominent, especially during summer months.

Galina Ermolina and another member of URI CC went to the Center with the World Flags Card set to facilitate a World Peace Flag Ceremony with children and staff.

First, Galina engaged the children in dialogue by posing the question, “what does it mean to actually live in peace?” It was a good discussion; the children had much to share.

Then they closed with songs, followed by the World Peace Flag Ceremony. They were all very impressed!

The children and their teachers have invited them to return to facilitate another WPFC and Peace program in the near future.
