DePaul University Promotes “Whirled” Peace

On Monday, September 21st, known as the World’s International Day of Peace, DePaul University  students in Chicago, IL gathered together to promote peace and reconnect with their creativity at the DePaul University Student Center at the Lincoln Park campus.

At the Campaign Nonviolence table, we provided paper pinwheels that students could decorate and create using wooden pencils and thumbtacks so the pinwheels for peace could spin around in the wind, catching viewer’s attention and promoting “whirled” peace! While students from the U.S. and even a group of students visiting DePaul from Venezuela worked together to create beautiful pieces of artwork, we shared our thoughts on the challenges and critical global issues facing our world today. CNV Brochures were distributed, encouraging students to learn more about the Week of Actions and Campaign Nonviolence and to get involved—to take an active role in changing our world and building a culture of peace.

In two hours, 40 students, 12 staff and 1 faculty created beautiful pinwheels, which we then took to St. Vincent’s circle near the campus library to plant the pinwheels in the ground at for all to see. Overall, we consider it to be a successful action; one that hopefully plants the seeds of peace in our DePaul community.
