Plant a Tree for World Harmony

Today is a special day in Dublin. Our wonderful international Peace Run team is visiting three schools and will be planting trees as a beautiful symbol for World Harmony.

Our first stop is Dublin 7 Educate together National School.

A peaceful moment.

We dig a hole in a nice sunny spot in the front of the school and ready the second tree of the day for planting.

The children are a bit older in this school and they share some inspiration about how we can work for Peace and Harmony in nature and in the environment.
