What is the word for ‘peace’ in Thai or in Arabic? In Hausa or in Maori? And how is it written? The answers to these questions confront us to the specific languages we have learned or will be able to learn – and which help build our own identity – just as much as to those languages we have no access to. ‘I Write Peace’ aims at encouraging readers from 11 years old to learn about the diversity of our writing systems through practical exercises. This is one of the many actions undertaken by UNESCO to promote tolerance and the rapprochement of cultures. 20 x 20 cm, "Writing Peace" encourages children (aged 8 to 18) to become aware of the interdependence of cultures through familiarization with contemporary writing systems, their history, and their mutual borrowings. Same edition in French and Arabic
