All schools and organizations – participants of the competition received a catalog, displaying the 50 best works of children – winners in 2016.

Among the guests of honor at the ceremony was present Mrs. Senator Aline Archimbaud, who personally congratulated the children, their parents, guests and organizers for taking this important initiative: to promote the ideas of peace and peaceful coexistence between adults and children through the prism of the children’s imagination by the artistic figure, by means of paint, brushes and pencils.

After the official ceremony in the Senate, the guests of the event were invited to the concert, which took place in the hall of the French Federation of UNESCO with the participation of artists from England, Israel, Kyrgyzstan and Ukraine in the framework of « We wish you peace and happiness! »

The project allowed of us, children and adults, to express our commitment to the ideas of peace in today’s world, that is not always filled with the best intentions.

Today our main task is to organize exhibitions in various parts of the world. We hope that next year our initiative will attract other countries and organizations to share with us the vision of a peaceful world.
