KidsDrawPeace - with tagline.png
Since the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, producers of news around the world have been inviting young readers and viewers to submit art that wishes peace and love for the children of Ukraine.

Inspired by the work of Kleine Kinderzeitung (Austria) and News-O-Matic (USA), Global Youth & News Media developed and organized the project and showcasing the resulting submissions.

In a second phase, citizens help refugee children who have found safe haven in their area to join the project.
Here's how (instructions in 10 languages).

The third phase, set for the International Day of Peace, 21 September 2022, calls for doing new art to make it clear that Ukraine is not forgotten.

This project will last as long as it takes.

The World Teenage Reporting Project encourages and amplifies teenage solutions journalism about the role other teenagers are playing in major global phenomena. Our main media partner is News-Decoder, a global educational news service for the young.
Phase One grew out of the negative coverage young people were receiving at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, spurring stories about how other teenagers were helping, producing more than 60 stories from 21 countries.
Phase 2 created a first showcase of Champions of Tolerance.
Phase 3, focuses on Climate Champions. It has inspired a journalism competition to take place in 2023 in partnership with the Erasmus + programme and The Climate Academy (Belgium) , News Decoder (France) and the New Earth Foundation (USA)
