Peace drawings by children adorn Colosseum in Rome

Rome, Sep 26 (IANS) More than 5,000 peace drawings by children from 128 countries, including India, are on display encircling the Colosseum in Rome from September 20-29.

Titled ‘Colours of Peace’, it is the world’s largest such exhibition of peace drawings by children.

The international event began three years ago in response to a call from the United Nations for communities worldwide to celebrate the UN International Day of Peace on September 21, according to a press release.

It is organised by the non-profit organisation Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run and represents children’s dreams for a better world.

Children from Goa participated in this event by sending some inspiring paintings.

The art works have been collected from school children who participated in the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run as well as from partner non-profit organisations.
