Activities will incorporate the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, discuss the effects of war and violence on children and youth, and the Canadian military's marketing campaign that specifically targets Aboriginal populations. Lesson sequences will be provided and explored surrounding the Palestine-Israel Conflict, and Olympic Truce, which was recently revived by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to emphasize the role sport can play in building a more peaceful world.
