At the Peace Pledge Union, we believe that young people should hear a range of views and perspectives on war and peace, allowing them to form their own views as they grow up.
We promote an alternative approach to remembrance that focuses on remembering all victims of war, with a view to creating a more peaceful world. We believe it is important to explore diverse experiences of war, to question common assumptions and to avoid euphemistic or militaristic language. The white poppy fosters an understanding of the value of a peaceful society and alternatives to armed force.
This resource is designed for teachers, parents and carers interested in starting a discussion around Remembrance Day in their school or community. The taster pack includes an introductory booklet on the PPU's alternative approach to remembrance, with activities, curriculum links and FAQs, as well as sample white poppies.
