Cultural Acknowledgment

A Peacemaking Project by mariyem t.

What is the injustice we are solving?

At my school they really like to emphasize on how diverse it is and use it to better their reputation. Yet they don’t bother to go further and really acknowledge the different cultures and backgrounds present within our school.

Our Compassionate Solution:

To solve this injustice of lack of acknowledgement of different cultures and identity appreciation
we will address that everyone has a history and that it matters
by allowing people to share their cultures and family rituals through a culture night.

Our Project Plan:


  • i want to make a culture night where a lot of different cultures can come together and everyone can learn about each other.
  • a lot of different cultural foods
  • stations maybe fun facts
  • guess the flag games +facts
  • performances
  • talk to the deans about what to do to make it happen

We will increase my / our compassion by...

learning wheee different people come from and their backgrounds.

How will you show courage?

By not only listening but also sharing my story.

How will you collaborate with others?

i will gather many people from many different backgrounds to share their stories and what makes them. Themselves.

How will you know you are moving in the right direction? (What are specific ways you can measure your impact?)

By creating a list and checking off all the things i need to complete in an organized manner.

Key Steps

  • Talk to deans
  • Create a group
  • Find students who are willing to participate
  • Set a date
  • Make an agenda
  • Get the funding
