  • This Week in Peace History

    September 23, 2007 - Dr. Jane Goodall created Roots & Shoots Day of Peace in 2004 in honor of U.N. International Day of Peace; each year, Roots & Shoots Day of Peace is observed in late September. Roots & Shoots groups around the world fly Giant Peace Dove puppets to celebrate Roots & Shoots Day of Peace for its symbolic meaning. They also plan and implement peace project initiatives to help make the world a better place for animals, the environment and the human community.

    Dr. Goodall was appointed a Messenger of Peace in 2002 by U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan. People selected as Messengers of Peace are widely recognized for their achievements in music, literature, sports and the arts.

    To commemorate her appointment, Roots & Shoots members at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point first conceived of and created the Giant Peace Dove puppets. Since then, Roots & Shoots groups have flown doves in over 40 countries around the world.

  1. What a delight to re-watch this video and hear Sally’s lovely words! NPP 2011 nominations open tomorrow…

  2. I have noticed that in old digital cameras, special detectors help to focus automatically.
    Those kind of sensors connected with some video cameras change in contrast, while others work with
    a beam of infra-red (IR) light, particularly in low lighting.

    Higher standards cameras from time to time use a combination of both devices and may have Face
    Priority AF where the digicam can ‘See’ your face while focusing only in that.
    Thanks for sharing your opinions on this blog.

  3. I like what you guys are up too. Such clever work and reporting!

    Keep up the excellent works guys I’ve incorporated
    you guys to my blogroll. I think it’ll improve the value of my site 🙂
