Abstract:

When an organization like PeaceJam, founded by two individuals with an amazing idea and the enthusiasm to make it happen, takes the influence of eleven Nobel Laureates and pairs it with the energy and drive of youth all over the world, the results can be astounding! Recently, PeaceJam has issued a Global Call to Action that it hopes will inspire a billion different projects to initiate change for the better. In these pages, we highlight just a small number of the goals that PeaceJam has already accomplished. Both awe inspiring and humbling, this book contains profiles of each of the Nobel Peace Laureates involved in PeaceJam, firsthand accounts of youth and their work with the Laureates, plus tools and resources to inspire others to action.

     Short story book, about people and peace. Amazing, inspirational stories with great pictures. Some difficult vocabulary.
