I am a volunteer with a local project we call 'The PeaceMobile'. It is a set of activities for children of the age range 7-10, organized around the themes Peace for Me, Peace of Us, Peace for Everyone, and Peace for the World. We take it to schools and other venues in and a round our city.
For the most part the activities are hands on and physical, e.g. tandem skis.
