Peace One Day’s PeaceTalks initiative supported by Skype enables two different classrooms in two different countries to carry out a dialogue facilitated by Peace One Day founder Jeremy Gilley. The process consists of Jeremy being physically present at one of the classrooms and then the other classroom skyping in, creating a dialogue on peace between students of the two classrooms.
