3. FIND A LOCATION
Find a safe location where you will be seen and there are enough people passing by to have good response to your activity. Make sure you have any permits or licenses necessary to do your project.
DESIGN YOUR #MYPEACEPROJECT
Create an activity that grabs people’s attention and invites them to participate.
ASK PASSERSBY THIS QUESTION
What would make your community a better place to live in? CLEARLY state this question, either written on a board, as part of your project, or verbally.
Make sure your activity has a way to track people’s responses (write them down, video, audio, etc.).
CONNECT AND NETWORK
Make sure you’re ready to tell people how to connect with you on social media. Some people may already want to join you in your peace efforts. For example: “Follow me on twitter.”
PEACE CARD CHALLENGE
When someone has responded positively to your #mypeaceproject, follow up with a peace card, and say, “Would you like to take the peace challenge?” (Hand them a card): “This is what I’m doing for peace.” “What would you do for peace?”
