Urdd Peace and Goodwill Message

Every year since 1922, the young people of Wales have shared a message of peace to their peers around the world. To this day, this is the only message of its kind in the world. It’s a valuable tradition that empowers the youth of Wales to create and inspire humanitarian activity internationally.

The message is created into a short film and will be available to share from the Urdd’s social media accounts on 17 May 24 | 7:30am BST.

2024 Theme:

This year’s Message honours the legacy of the Welsh Women’s Peace Petition of 1923-1924, signed by 390,296 women across Wales. A hundred years later, the young women of Wales reaffirm the need to advocate for peace. The message inspires us to act for peace. It emphasizes that war and violence is never the answer – encouraging us to lead and collaborate for a brighter future for everyone.
