School Day of Non-violence and Peace


School Day of Non-violence and Peace


The School Day of Non-violence and Peace (or DENIP, acronym from catalan-majorcan: Dia Escolar de la No-violència i la Pau), is an observance founded by the Spanish poet Llorenç Vidal Vidal in Majorca in 1964.[1] It is observed on January 30 or thereabouts every year, on the anniversary of the death of Mahatma Gandhi, in schools all over the world . Its basic and permanent message is: "Universal love, non-violence and peace. Universal love is better than egoism, non-violence is better than violence, and peace is better than war".[2] In countries with a Southern Hemisphere school calendar, it can be observed on March 30 or thereabouts. In Navarra the slogan for the 2009 was "above all, we are friends" (Spanish:"Por encima de todo, somos amigos").[3] DENIP and World Association of Early Childhood Educators (AMEI-WAECE) [4]
