Organize Jam nights and Clubs:
Song-writing and singing clubs and groups should come up and spread cheer among the masses with their presence. Singing about peace and feeling that touches heart will bring positivity around. Music has great power over our minds. We should celebrate the lives lost in war and call them our martyrs but we should sing and praise the significance of peace. Music can greatly spread this message.
Painting Galleries and Exhibits:
Paintings are another way to celebrate this day. In fact, a picture that one sees has different interpretations. Moreover, the meaning that a painting may hold according to the viewer may entirely be different from what the artist may want to convey. That is the beauty of art. The power of paintings leaves an impression so tight on our hearts that those become the symbols. We can speak our heart without uttering a single word through art.
Artists should step forth and botch the canvas with colors and create messages of peace. Children at school, clubs, and people from the streets should be called and asked to paint. Fares should be arranged, competitions should be held and rewards should be given. These activities would help ignite the lost feelings and emotions. It will highlight the significance of peace.
Book readings, seminars should be held:
Discussions and lectures should be given about the eminent personalities who chose peace over violence and helped revolutionize the world. Book readings are an effective way to touch the hearts of the people. This will show them how brave people stood up not for violence but for peace and contributed towards the service to mankind and feelings of brotherhood. Clubs should arrange sittings and talk about such people like Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Dalai Lama, Martin Luther, etc. Remembering such people will leave an imprint on the minds of people. Their contributions will teach that non-violence is the greatest power that unites souls.
Placard making competitions:
Little activities like children making placards on peace, can help spread the message and raise funds. Needy people can get help from these funds. Such activities will help children understand and celebrate the World Peace Day.
Rallies and Candle March:
In the name of peace, rallies should be conducted and a candle march should be carried out. Media should show such activities so that everyone can watch it. Mass participation should take place. When we stand united that is when we realize what we need to follow

Short films go viral in minutes and today it is the world of the internet. As soon as something trends on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook; it becomes accessible to millions of people in minutes. When we have such a vast technology at hands then why not use it judiciously?
Organize Charity Functions:
Charity functions should be arranged on such day. These can be fun activities like raising money by playing games. International participants can be called and games like basketball, soccer etc. can be organized. When celebrities perform it helps even more in bringing about the global message to reach the hearts of people. This is an effective way of celebrating the World Peace Day.
