Children and young people from 19 countries took part and set a strong signal for more peace in the world.
More than 1,000 children and young people gave away their personal plastic weapons. From all the plastic weapons we then built the "sculpture of peace" in the courtyard of the congress hall of the Nazi party rally in Nuremberg.

Around 400 students from Nuremberg took part in the construction, together with youth delegations from Russia, Ukraine, Serbia, Romania, North Macedonia, Greece and Albania. 

The 4-meter-high "sculpture of peace" will now stand in the courtyard of the congress hall until December 2019 and will then go on tour.

 

It will be mounted at various societal places encourage discussion.

Project progression until 2022

The delegations of the 2nd Summit Conference For Children & Youth have decided how the global plastic weapons collection should continue – until the year 2022. Thus, all children and young people worldwide are invited to participate.

Send your plastic weapons to the Nuremberg Toy Museum (please write down your first name, age and location):

Spielzeugmuseum
Karlstr. 13-15
90403 Nürnberg

 

Other “pillars of peace” will be constructed in various places, since we are pursuing a great vision: We want to build a “temple of disarmament”.

 


Construction of the sculpture of peace - from plastic weapons collected worldwide

Abolish weapons / stop wars is what children and young people from 30 countries demanded at the 1st children's summit conference in September 2018.
Since then, young people around the world have been collecting plastic toy guns to symbolically express their desire for peace. On October 18, 2019, the large "Sculpture of Peace" was created out of all the plastic weapons collected – at a memorable place of fascism.

18 countries are already taking part in the plastic weapons collection (Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Palestine, Greece, North Macedonia, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, Liechtenstein, Austria, Italy, Spain, Malaysia, USA, Australia) – more countries will follow.

Of course, schools, youth facilities and kindergardens can also become active themselves and collect plastic weapons on their own. The initiators are invited to contact us:
