NSW R&S UN International Peace Day – 21 September 2019
NSW Roots & Shoots groups celebrated the 2019 UN International Peace Day with the YATZ
at Taronga Zoo on the 21 st of September. Our theme this year was Hope for the future: the
next generation in honour of all the cubs, pups and babies born at the Zoo. We began the
day by sharing the projects we’d done for animals, people and the environment in the past
year before heading out into the Zoo to visit the new additions. We came together again in
the afternoon to talk about our hopes for the future and to write our pledges for peace on
feathers to add to the Peace Dove. The Dove holds three years of our Peace Day pledges.
We ended the day by parading the Dove through the Zoo.
