DePaul University Promotes “Whirled” Peace

Posted by Erin Bechtol

by Cara Miller  // Part of the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions 

To celebrate the World’s International Day of Peace on September 21st, members of the DePaul University community in Chicago, IL gathered at the Lincoln Park campus. Students decorated paper pinwheels and then assembled the pinwheels using wooden pencils and thumbtacks. These pinwheels for peace can spin around in the wind, catching viewer’s attention and promoting “whirled” peace! While students worked together to create colorful pinwheels, they shared 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 each year—to take an active role in changing our world and building a culture of peace. The peace pinwheels were taken to St. Vincent’s circle near the campus library to plant in the ground for all to see. Overall, we consider it to be a successful action; one that continue to plant the seeds of peace in the DePaul community.
