Welcome to the Big Book: Pages for Peace Project

 

The Pages for Peace Project is a group of public school students devoted to the idea that kids CAN make a difference in helping to create a more peaceful world.  To make our point, our after-school club worked for twelve years to build the biggest book in the world about peace, which includes over 1000 pages of content with each one measuring 12 feet tall and 10 feet wide.

We began writing letters worldwide asking people to send us their messages of peace. Over time we received thousands of letters, poems, and pieces of artwork from all around the world and began work to compile them all into the Big Book. That is when we knew that this project had the potential to spread an inspirational message, and the world’s largest book about peace was born.

 

Now that the Big Book has been completed and displayed at the JFK Library in Boston, the United Nations Headquarters in New York City, and the Civic Center in Providence, Rhode Island, we are ready to spread Big Book’s inspirational messages of peace with the world through installations in museums, libraries, galleries, schools and conferences.

 

The mission of the Big Book: Pages for Peace Project is to spread messages of peace and hope by displaying the world’s biggest book on peace and promoting peace education worldwide.

We hope to share Big Book: Pages for Peace and its interactive digital version accompanied by a peace education curriculum worldwide.
