Coming September 2013 is Friend Our World, an online learning hub for children all over the world to unite in friendship games of geography, languages and global citizenship. Friend Our World is being created by Skoolbo in collaboration with Microsoft, Peace One Day and Skype in the Classroom.
Friend Our World is open to all school children and completely free of charge. The event will open from Sunday 1 September, 2013, and will run as a festival through to International Day of Peace on 21 September.
'Friend Our World will enable young people to form friendships and play games together, breaking down barriers and spreading the message of Peace Day around the world. I urge everyone to get involved' said Jeremy Gilley, Peace One Day Founder.
Friend Our World will also provide teachers and schools with tremendous teaching resources. Another highlight is the Friendly Schools Global Forum in mid-September, an online conference focusing on anti-bullying strategies for schools.
EdComs is proud to be an Official Supporter of Friend Our World.
